An NYPD sergeant accused of shooting his wife’s trainer after finding the two of them home alone in the middle of the night has turned himself in, The Post has learned.
The 34-year-old cop, Justin Ellis, was arraigned Wednesday after being indicted on an assault charge. He was released with a future court date, Nassau County officials confirmed.
Ellis came home just after midnight on Oct. 25, 2019, and discovered the wife with her 29-year-old trainer in their Nassau County home in Seaford.
The two allegedly exchanged words before the trainer went to his car to grab a bat and the off-duty cop shot him.
The trainer, whose name was not released, was shot in the chest but survived. He is expected to also face charges, sources said.
The cop, who worked in the 103rd Precinct in Queens, was previously placed on modified duty. It was unknown if his status remained modified Wednesday.
The NYPD did not immediately respond for comment.
Ellis is due back in court in Nassau County on Jan. 7, 2021, county officials confirmed.
