NEW YORK (AP) — A man whose gun accidentally went off at a wedding at Manhattan’s Waldorf Astoria this summer has been indicted on weapons charges.
The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/2271QPA ) says court papers show Vladimir Gotlibovsky and his brother, Felix, were arraigned Tuesday on criminal possession of a weapon and tampering with physical evidence charges.
Vladimir Gotlibovsky was additionally charged with misdemeanor assault. His attorney says he’ll contest the charges. He was licensed to carry the gun.
Felix Gotlibovsky is accused of taking the gun from his brother and then hiding it in Vladimir’s house. His attorney says the trial will show nothing criminal was done.
