A man accused of sparking a wild scene outside the Port Authority Bus Terminal is being denied bail and will receive a psychiatric evaluation before his next court date.

Glenn Broadnax was brought before a judge in Manhattan Criminal Court on Sunday.

He is charged with menacing, criminal possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest.

Police say an officer saw Broadnax acting erratically at Eighth Avenue and 42nd Street shortly after 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

Cell phone video captured the chaotic scene, as police opened fire.

They say Broadnax was walking in and out of traffic and appeared to be trying to get hit by a car.

He avoided attempts by the officer to take him into custody.

Two women were accidentally shot in the ordeal.

A woman was shot in the knee and another woman was grazed on the buttocks.

They are both recovering.

Officials say that Broadnax has a record, with a total of 23 arrests.

His first arrest was 1993 with a narcotics arrest and he’s been arrested almost every year since then.

He is due back in court on October 8.
