He later accused New York City police officers of discriminating against him because he is Irish Catholic, and his lawyer later blamed alcoholism and post traumatic stress disorder for the incident. Friends told TPM that Enright had a history of alcohol abuse.

Supreme Court Judge Richard Carruthers signed off on the bail, allowing Enright's mother to put her Brewster, NY home down as collateral, the newspaper reported.

"The defendant is not to go to any bar or club that serves alcoholic beverages," Carruthers said. Enright was also subjected to an 8 p.m. curfew and to undergo alcohol rehab and see a mental health professional, according to the Daily News. He cannot travel outside of New York, will have to surrender his passport, and will have to wear an electric monitoring device, said the newspaper.

The Justice Department said it was investigating the Enright incident alongside local authorities.
