By Barbara Ross A drunken state narcotics agent who accidentally shot two drinking buddies on the Upper West Side in September 2014 has been sued by one of them who was hit in the calf by a ricocheted bullet.
Sidney Whitehead, 43, accuses Victor Zambrano, 50, of gross negligence in papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.
Zambrano, who worked for the New York State Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement, pleaded guilty last April to misdemeanor assault charges after the incident. He got community service and no jail provided he stayed out of trouble for a year.
Whitehead and his girlfriend, Nichola Davidson, told cops that Zambrano's 9 mm gun went off at Amsterdam and West 82 St. as Zambrano was trying to get the gun back from Davidson. Police said Davidson had persuaded him to give it up a short time before that because she thought he was too intoxicated to carry it.
