Roselle Park NJ Resisting Arrest & Disorderly Conduct

August 19, 2014

This past week, a brother and sister were charged and arrested for disorderly conduct and the brother was charged additionally with a third degree resisting arrest. The arrests came in connection of a police investigation of a fight in the roadway on the 600 block of Sherman Avenue.

According to Roselle Park Police, officers responded to a report of a fight in the roadway early Saturday morning. Upon arriving at the scene, they found approximately 20 individuals standing around and an investigation revealed that one of the individuals involved in the alleged fight had already fled the scene. However, the other alleged fighter was still at the scene and began yelling obscenities at the officers. When officers attempted to calm him down, he refused to comply and quiet down and return to a nearby friend’s house.

Officers then allege that the situation quickly escalated when the defendant aggressively “chest bumped” Sgt. Matthew Disano, who then attempted to arrest Benner and take him into custody. However, the defendant violently resisted those efforts, and after a brief struggle, he was handcuffed and secured. Right when police thought the situation was defused, the defendant’s sister, ran at them, yelling obscenities and punching a nearby automobile so she was also placed under arrest for disorderly conduct.

To date, the other individual in the fight has not been identified. Sgt. Disano did suffer a minor shoulder injury during the arrest, but the officer did not require medical attention at the time, according to police.
