An NYPD officer was released without bail from a Queens courthouse on Saturday after he was cuffed for punching his mother.
Joseph Wong faces up to a year on Rikers Island for punching his mother in the face during an argument. He was charged with third-degree assault and harassment.
Wong, 35, caused redness and swelling to the right side of his mom's face, according to the criminal complaint.
Queens Criminal Court Judge Toko Serita released Wong on his own recognizance and ordered him back to court on Jan. 31.
Wong earned over $110,000 in 2018, according to public records.
