Elmwood Park police vet accused of Election Day death threat

(11/12/04) ELMWOOD PARK An Elmwood Park police officer is the target of an internal investigation after poll workers claim he threatened to kill them.

According to election workers, the incident occurred on Election Day when eight-year police veteran Ronald Serio showed up to the polls in full uniform. Workers say Serio was not allowed to vote because he would not show his identification. After being barred from the booth, workers claim Serio said, You know I could kill you allright now.

Elmwood Park Chief of Police Don Ingrasselino says the matter is being taken very seriously. Serio has been suspended with pay until the conclusion of the investigation. The officer may also face criminal charges.
