P.O. officers Michele Anglin (in black) and Koleen Robinson leave Bronx courtroom after the verdict sentence
Two Bronx cops accused of beating a man during a traffic dispute were convicted of official misconduct Thursday - but jurors were deadlocked on gang assault charges.
Jurors found that Michelle Anglin and Koleen Robinson, 27, acted improperly in their capacity as police officers during a street brawl with a Bronx spoken-word poet.
"Wow," a shocked-looking Anglin whispered as the guilty verdicts were read.
The cops were accused of pistol-whipping Marlon Smith, 38, blinding him with pepper spray and striking him with a baton until his head cracked open.
They also assaulted a man who came to Smith's aide and never flashed police identification, prosecutors said.
Jurors have not reached a verdict on the two counts of gang assault against each cop.
The off-duty cops were driving through Williamsbridge on Aug. 18, 2008, when they allegedly told Smith to close his "f------" car door.
Not knowing they were cops, Smith had words with the pair, calling them "bitches," prosecutors said.
The cops - who work out of Transit District 12 in the Bronx - face a minimum of five years in prison if convicted on all charges.
