JONATHAN JOSEY, the Philadelphia police lieutenant fired for knocking a woman to the ground after last year's Puerto Rican Day parade, and the woman, Aida Guzman, saw each other again Tuesday.
The credibility of both came under fire during Josey's one-day, nonjury trial in a courtroom so packed that some had to stand, including members of his former Highway Patrol unit.
After nearly three hours of testimony, Municipal Judge Patrick Dugan said that the "compelling" arguments from both sides would require him to postpone ruling on Josey's fate until Feb. 26.
Josey, 41, a decorated 19-year department veteran, fought with his emotions and his voice cracked as he testified about the Sept. 30 clash with Guzman, which bystanders recorded on cellphones and posted to YouTube. The video was played repeatedly in court for Dugan.
