NEW ROCHELLE — The city’s development commissioner and architect behind the unprecedented redevelopment of the downtown was charged in connection with a physical altercation with a worker in Trump Plaza.
Luiz Aragon was charged with second-degree harassment and was arraigned in New Rochelle City Court this afternoon, the District Attorney’s Office confirmed.
He pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to return to city court on Nov. 20.
The judge ordered a temporary order of protection with a stay-away provision and no communication with the victim, which prohibits Aragon from having any contact with the victim but it allows Aragon to continue to live in his condo. The prosecution objected to this but the judge overruled.
