GREENBURGH - Cops have to deal with a lot of crap on the job, but this was a little too much.

Greenburgh police said an ex-convict from Sleepy Hollow lost control while being arrested in the robbery of his ex-girlfriend, going so far as to kick feces at officers who took him to the hospital for treatment.

Eugene Feeney, a 39-year-old registered sex offender, now faces criminal charges that could send him back to prison for up to 15 years.

The sordid ordeal began at 9 p.m. Thursday, police Lt. Christopher McNerney said, when a passing motorist reported a man and woman fighting at an automated teller machine at 1150 Knollwood Road.

Officers said they found Feeney grabbing a 37-year-old woman by her arms and the back of her neck. The woman, his ex-girlfriend, told police that Feeney forced her to the ATM and made her take out $100, McNerney said.

Feeney struggled with the arresting officers and started kicking his legs in the back of the police cruiser so violently that he almost broke out a rear window, police said. Police used a handheld Taser gun to subdue Feeney and brought him to Westchester Medical Center for treatment, McNerney said.

While in the emergency room, he defecated, and a small plastic bag containing marijuana emerged, police said. He then began kicking the feces at police and nurses at the hospital, McNerney said.

Police brought him back to headquarters and booked him in his soiled clothes. "We had to decontaminate the whole cell," McNerney said.

Feeney was charged with second-degree robbery and second-degree assault, both felonies; unlawful imprisonment, a misdemeanor; and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation. He was arraigned yesterday in Greenburgh Town Court and held without bail at Westchester County jail.

Feeney is not a stranger to Greenburgh police. He was arrested there in 2004, accused of rape, and later pleaded guilty to a felony charge of criminal sexual act, McNerney said. Feeney served more than three years in prison and was discharged Dec. 5.
