On January 25 at 9PM, Officer Marc Silva was engaged in Crime Suppression when he observed a male outside the El Meson screaming obscenities and kicking the door to the bar. He immediately intervened and notified dispatch. Sergeants Stan Titterington and John Brown and Officers Mike Gregory and Amaris Gracian arrived to assist. The male was intoxicated and belligerent towards officers. He took a fighting stance and did not cooperate. Officer Silva ultimately placed him under arrest and charged him a disorderly person. Once at headquarters he continued to fight with police eventually threatening to kill the arresting officer. The 36 year old Newark resident was later found to be wanted by East Brunswick.
