New Hyde Park Fire Commissioner Arrested for Assault

Michael Dolan Sr. arrested for allegedly punching driver in face in Garden City.

New Hyde Park Fire Commissioner Arrested for Assault

New Hyde Park Fire Commissioner Michael Dolan, Sr. was arrested in Garden City on Friday on assault charges stemming from a road rage incident according to Garden City Police.

According to detectives, officers responded to a road rage incident on Merillon Avenue on Nov. 22 between the 69-year old Dolan and another male driver. Both vehicles had stopped and Dolan allegedly walked up to the other car and punched the driver in the face causing pain, facial lacerations and a broken tooth.

The victim is a 64-year-old man from Massapequa.

Upon their investigation, Garden City detectives identified Dolan and arrested him for assault.

Dolan's identity and mugshot were obtained by Patch through requests made to the Garden City Police Department.

Dolan, who is a sitting New Hyde Park Fire Commissioner, was earlier this year dismissed from his duties as a member of the fire department after allegedly stealing smoke detectors from the department in 2012. The Nassau County District Attorney’s Office eventually  dropped the criminal charges. The fire commissioners  issued a decision to dismiss Michael Dolan Sr. from his duties as a firefighter, but voted to reinstate his son, Michael Dolan Jr. to the department.
