Cop involved with ticket-fixing scandal admitted to psych-ward, NY Daily News

A Bronx cop involved in the ticket-fixing probe has been admitted to a psychiatric ward, after he tried to kill himself after testifying in the case, reports the New York Daily News.

Robert McGree, 62, tried to kill himself Sept. 14 in the subway. On Wednesday, cops took McGree into hospital for a suicide watch after he briefly went missing from his home in Riverdale and family members expressed concerns about his depression.

Several Bronx cops have been embroiled in a ticket-fixing scandal, as well as leaking information about the probe. A grand jury is convening this week to determine the charges against the officers.
