A FORMER COP accused of falsely identifying himself while turning in guns at a police station last summer was held for trial yesterday. Ex-Sgt. Brandon Ruff, 28, said afterward: "I'm not surprised. I'm glad . . . I get to tell my side. " After two cops testified at Ruff's preliminary hearing, Ruff was called to the stand by his attorney, Michael Pileggi. Ruff testified that on Aug. 3, he spoke with a cousin about starting a group to get guns off the street. He then met his cousin, whom he identified as DeRyan Jones, at 21st and Latona streets in Point Breeze and got three guns from him. Later that day, he went to the 35th Police District, at Broad and Champlost streets in Ogontz, to turn the guns in anonymously.

Thanks to a mail room mix-up, that's who found the identification cards in his mailbox on Jan. 5. "You can't make this up," Radnor Police Superintendent William Colarulo said of the similarity in names that lead to the discovery.

A TREMBLING VOICE on a cellphone video can be heard pleading, "Let me get out of this, man," as he is pummeled with fists on a moving cable car Friday night. "Slide out, yo - they callin' the cops," a voice says on the video. That's when the trolley comes to a stop and everybody exits. SEPTA police are investigating the cause of - and perpetrators behind - a vicious brawl involving as many as eight teens on a westbound trolley in Parkside that had departed Center City about 11:30 p.m. Two of the teens were stomped, kicked, punched and pounded as stunned passengers looked on. In the video, filmed by an onlooker, two teens shield their faces from flying fists while voices in the background are laughing and jeering at the spectacle.
