Really, people, we apparently can’t say this enough. Please don’t urinate on the streets of Montclair. First there was the 16-year-old with Poland Spring bottle; then this weekend, cracking down on “quality of life” crimes by patrons of the Diva Lounge, police caught a Newark resident urinating on the chain-link fence surrounding the Social Security Administration building.
After the suspect relieved himself, he looked up, saw the officer and said, “Oh, my bad.” Then, after being asked to produce ID, he added, “I guess I’m just having a bad birthday.” The man was arrested for lewdness and released.
Know what else isn’t cool?
When the police have picked you up for driving under the influence and are about to release you to your parents instead of locking you up, doing what this 21-year-old resident of East Orange did in the lobby of Montclair police headquarters.
According to the police report, the suspect told her mother, “Fuck you bitch, I don’t want to go with you,” then advanced on her parents in a “menacing manner.” When a police officer told her to calm down, she threw a punch at him. Next thing, several police officers had her in a “compliance hold” on the floor, but she continued to punch and kick, with stiletto heels no less, leaving three officers and police matron with swelling and bruises.
She was jailed, with bond set at $25,000.
