The rumors about Leo McGuire

Since no official police reports exist, it is likely that the only story about an alleged traffic incident involving Bergen County Sheriff Leo McGuire is the one involving an intense week of rumor and innuendo.  According to sources close to the two-term Sheriff, McGuire and New Jersey Real Estate Commission Chairman Robert Pimienta spent the afternoon of Saturday, April 17 watching the New York Yankees beat the Texas Rangers as the guests of Bergen County Sheriff’s Department Chief Michael Bradley, who was not using his season tickets.  McGuire drove Pimienta, a Democratic fundraiser, in his county vehicle.  On his way out of the parking lot, as two lanes merged into one, another car allegedly bumped McGuire’s car from behind.  Both drivers got out and returned to the car after seeing that there was no damage. Sources say that McGuire maintains he consumed no alcohol during the three-hour game, and that he did not identify himself as a law enforcement official to the other driver.  Sources say that a scratch on McGuire’s black Crown Victoria was buffed out by a Sheriff’s officer on Monday morning.
