Man Pleads Guilty To Pushing Stranger Into Harbor

BALTIMORE (AP) — A Pasadena man has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter for pushing a stranger who couldn’t swim into the Inner Harbor.

Wayne Black, 21, had been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Ankush Gupta, 22, of Boyds. According to Thursday’s plea agreement, Black will be sentenced to four years in prison on Aug. 30.

Police say Black confessed to pushing Gupta into the water in August 2008. They say he had visited the harbor to skateboard and asked Gupta for a cigarette, then shoved him.

    Mr. Bernstein, I thought you were about change. What I’ve seen so far from your department is worse than Jessamy. Four years for a blatant murder? How can you send a message with that kind of sentence. This message should have been at least a twenty year sentence. You are a complete fraud.

    If Officer Rivieri was still on the force this kind of $hit would probably not have happened.He was doing his job and was fired because some skate rat could not follow directions or read. Pathetic….

      WJZ, Why did you remove Tom’s comment. I enjoy debating morons…

    Liberals like you d-wad are why the City is like it is. Excessive force my a$$. That kid did not have a scratch on him. Take your family to the Inner Harbor one summer evening and you will be glad there are still officers like Rivieri on the force who will save your sorry worthless a$$ when the $hit hits the fan. Just look at what happened on the 4th of July. Are you a moron?

      What the hell are you trying to say? Maybe some punctuation would help. You must be a graduate of the Baltimore City School system.
