May 30, 1996|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A white New York City police detective beat a young black man into a coma outside a disco in the Hamptons while several other men drew guns to hold off the victim's friends, authorities alleged. Detective Constantine Chronis, 34, was in jail after pleading not guilty to assault. None of the other men had been apprehended, Westhampton Beach police said. Shane Daniels, 21, of Riverhead was comatose and in critical condition, a hospital spokeswoman said. Officials said the attack appeared to be racially motivated.
