Cop accused in bartender beating due in court

Anthony Abbate was off duty when he was allegedly caught on tape attacking Karolina Obrycka.

Witnesses say Abbate became upset when the bartender refused to serve him more alcohol.

His trial was scheduled to begin Tuesday. But his lawyers will reportedly ask to continue the case. They apparently want more time to review transcripts from a federal lawsuit filed by Obrycka.
