NEW YORK (AP) - The subway vigilante who shot four panhandling youths on a New York City train in the 1980s is facing drug charges after allegedly selling marijuana to an undercover officer.
Bernhard Goetz was arraigned on misdemeanor drug charges Saturday in Manhattan Criminal Court.
The 65-year-old Goetz was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court next month. He declined to discuss the case with reporters outside the courthouse.
A criminal complaint says Goetz was arrested Friday evening in Union Square after giving an undercover police officer a napkin with loose marijuana in exchange for money.
The complaint says Goetz also had more pot in his pocket.
