Louis Segna, a lifelong Williamsburg resident, has been found guilty of making false reports after calling the cops 400 times with bogus stories about Williamsburg’s hipsters.
Apparently, starting in 2011, Segna—who lives above Konditori on N. 7th Street between Bedford and Driggs Avenues—began making false 911 reports targeting the neighborhood’s newer residents. One time, he called the cops on Spike Hill, saying he was held at knifepoint after asking the owners of the venue to turn down the music. The day before, he’d falsely reported that shots had been fired at Station, across the street from where he lived. And in 2012, he sued Konditori.
53-year-old Segna was finally caught in January 2013 when a cop recognized his voice and this week, he was convicted, reports the New York Post. He may just get a few years probation (his lawyer claims he has “a borderline mental disability), but jail time remains a real possibility.
Here’s Segna reporting his fake “near-knifing” at Spike Hill in December 2012.
