Aug. 7, 2013: Bronxville residents are scratching their heads over the new twist in the Randall (Randy) Cutler case concerning an incident that occurred in Bronxville on November 1, 2012, between him and his brother, Jeffrey (Jeff) Cutler, over the use of a gas generator during the weekend of Hurricane Sandy.
According to the original police report filed by the Bronxville police at the time of the incident, Jeff Cutler said in a phone call to the police that his brother, Randy, was pointing a gun at him. The police were dispatched immediately and found a small arsenal of weapons in Randy's bedroom.
The discovery resulted in the arrest of Randy on one count of criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree, a class D felony, and six counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, class A misdemeanors.
However, according to an article in the July 30 issue of the Journal News, a statement given to the police shortly after the incident and recently disclosed court papers state that Randy Cutler blames his brother for the incident. He stated that during the altercation, his brother "hit him in the head with a socket wrench" and "pointed the sharp end of a crow bar in his chest . . . threatening his life." He also called his brother "a steroid user who is prone to violent rages."
According to the article, "Jeff Cutler, who was never charged with any crime in connection with the incident, denied his brother's allegations when reached Monday before declining to comment further on the case." Randy Cutler pleaded not guilty in May of 2013 to all the charges.
The Westchester County district attorney's office reported that Randy Cutler's next appearance in Westchester County Court in White Plains is set for September 18. John Pappalardo of Tuckahoe is the lawyer representing him. Assistant District Attorney Patrick Moore, chief of the county's firearms bureau, will be prosecuting the case against Cutler, according to the Westchester County district attorney's office.
