Assistant Managing Editor

While sitting in a cell on Riker's Island, facing charges that he assaulted a police officer, Ehud Halevy worried that he had unknowingly struck one of the cops who arrested him during a fracas at a Crown Heights youth center on Oct. 8.

"I was surprised there were so many charges," he said on Wednesday. '[The public defender] said I could get up to seven years."
