Martin Gugino’s attorney, Kelly Zarcone, says the 75-year-old suffered a fractured skull from the push and fall, adding that Martin is unable to get up on his own 2 feet for the time being while he recuperates. He was released from ICU last week, but remains hospitalized.
According to TMZ, Zarcone also released a statement directly from Martin, who says, “I think it’s very unnecessary to focus on me. There are plenty of other things to think about besides me.”
Meanwhile, the 2 officers who shoved the elderly man were charged with second-degree assault charges butpled not guilty, and remain suspended without pay.
