NYPD “Karate Cop” Arrested After Shooting Mother of His Child

A New York City police sergeant nicknamed the “Karate Cop” was arrested this week after he was accused of shooting the mother of his child in the neck during a domestic spat.

Jose Guerrero, 49, was charge with reckless endangerment and second-degree assault. He was released on bail and is scheduled for a following court hearing in January.

Guerrero’s arrest took place on Wednesday evening after the 39-year-old woman was admitted to a Yonkers emergency room at St. John’s hospital.

Guerrero is a fifth-degree karate black belt and is the founder of a [__dojo in Yonkers,__](http://www.guerrero-martialarts.com/Index.html) earning him the nickname “Karate Cop.”

The dojo’s [__Facebook page__](https://www.facebook.com/guerreroubakarate/timeline) shows he is a favorite with local media who frequently drop in to do segments.

Last year, the New York Daily News profiled Guerrero and his dojo, saying he has the [__“chops for the job.”__](https://www.facebook.com/guerreroubakarate/timeline)

Now the [__New York Daily News__](http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/nypd-sergeant-karate-shot-child-mother-article-1.2477206) is taking a much more serious tone in reporting about his arrest.

An NYPD rep said Guerrero is currently suspended [__without pay.__](http://bigstory.ap.org/article/2f829f211a03466284106833c4cd5c40/duty-police-sergeant-arrested-womens-shooting)

Sgt. Guerrero has been with the New York Police Department for 16 years and worked in the 45th Precinct in the Bronx.

This is not the first headline that the [__NYPD is making this week.__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2015/12/nypd-cop-charged-with-felonies-for-arresting-man-trying-to-record-him-pawing-woman/)

A fellow officer, Jonathan Munoz, got busted thanks to surveillance footage and is currently facing two felony counts of filing false reports and three misdemeanors of official misconduct.

Munoz, 32, walked up to a woman and [__began pawing her in a suggestive manner,__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2015/04/nypd-cop-paws-on-woman-standing-on-sidewalk-before-pouncing-on-friend-for-recording/) only to arrest her male friend who pulled out a phone to record.

Munoz claimed Jason Disisto took a “fighting stance” before taking a swing at him late one night in [__March 2014.__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2015/04/nypd-cop-paws-on-woman-standing-on-sidewalk-before-pouncing-on-friend-for-recording/)

But a surveillance camera proved otherwise.

That video that did not surface until after Munoz and two other cops pounced on Disito and forced him into a car, driving away as one of them threw the phone out the window, causing it to break.

Disito, charged with obstructing governmental administration, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, which are the usual contempt-of-cop charges, which were all dropped thanks to the video.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
