Get these girls some sticks!
The gorgeous wife of famed Ranger Brian Leetch tried to pull rank when she was busted for attacking staffers at a Manhattan gay bar on a ladies night out, prosecutors said Thursday.
“I have friends who are cops. I even know the commissioner,” Mary Beth Leetch allegedly bragged to police May 12 at the 19th Precinct after she and her sister, Tracy Murphy, landed in cuffs for a wild brawl at Brandy’s Piano Bar.
Prosecutors said that after cops were called to the East 84th Street watering hole, Mary Beth allegedly boasted of her marriage to one of the team’s most popular players.
“I’m Brian Leetch’s wife,” she announced.
The statement disclosures were made at the saucy sisters’ arraignment Thursday on assault and harassment raps in Manhattan Criminal Court.
Mary Beth allegedly claimed that the fight, which left the bartender with a bloody gash on his head, started after the sisters and another pal were asked to leave because “we were singing too loud.”
After they were booted, the trio refused to pay their measly $33 tab at the bar where the staffers are actors and singers who perform at a piano.
Assistant District Attorney Alexis Bullard said Mary Beth, 49, admitted she charged at a staffer.
“I was trying to get the phone out of her hand because she was recording me, and my sister was getting attacked so I was helping her,” the mother of three told police.
The feisty mama allegedly hit one staffer and cut her hand before she and Murphy, 44, went after the bartender – ripping up his shirt and leaving him with a laceration that needed seven staples, court papers charge.
A witness who tried to break up the fight was left bloodied after they smacked him in the face and busted open his lip, the complaint says.
Mary Beth looked demure in black slacks and a white blazer as she and her sister, a mother of six, stood before Judge Sandra Roper.
Her attorney, Joseph Mure, said the three complainants should have also been arrested. Both sisters had extensive bruises and scratches.
Murphy’s lawyer, Arthur Aidala, added, “Anybody who knows this family knows what law-abiding, God-fearing people they are, who are not troublemakers and who were not looking for trouble that night.”
Private investigator and former Fox 5 news reporter Mike Sheehan served Murphy with a civil suit filed by the complainants shortly before she entered the courtroom. Both sisters are named in the papers.
Brian Leetch, 50, retired from the NHL in 2007 after 18 seasons and was later inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Mary Beth and Murphy, who is married to Rosecliff Capital hedge funder Michael Murphy, are due back in court Sept. 17.
