A rookie cop accused of body-slamming a bicyclist during a Times Square rally has been fired by the NYPD, police confirmed Thursday. Police Officer Patrick Pogan, 23, was fired by the department Feb. 10, police confirmed. Pogan was barely out of the academy when he was caught on video tackling cyclist Christopher Long at a Critical Mass cyclist rally in July. The video became a hit on YouTube, and Pogan was brought up on criminal charges in December for assault, harassment and filing a bogus police report.
