ANY OTHER INFORMATION: The owner of Pavinci’s called the Hopatcong Police to remove a patron refusing to leave the bar. The owner had been approached by some patrons stating that Ciccarella was harassing them. The owner tried to speak with Ciccarella but was spoken to aggressively so he asked him to leave the bar. Ciccarella refused. Again the owner tried to get him to leave the bar. Ciccarella would not leave. The owner advised him that he was going to call the police if he did not leave. Still Ciccarella would not leave. The owner then called the Police. Officer Lotito went into the bar and met Ciccarella who was intoxicated. They went outside so that Officer Lotito could give him a ride home. Officer Lotito asked for his personal information for the report. Ciccarella would not cooperate. He eventually gave the officer his license. Ciccarella would not accept a ride home. He was told to leave the property by patrols. He did leave calling the police “boy scouts” and “A bunch of tough guys’. He soon returned and wanted to be taken to the Police Station to speak with a supervisor. Sgt. O’Shea stated he was the supervisor and would talk to him. Ciccarella became belligerent. He told the officers that he did not have to leave the property. He was told he would be arrested if he did not leave. He raised his arms towards Sgt. O’Shea and cursed at him. At that point Ciccarella was arrested. He was taken to headquarters, charged and later released to his girlfriend.
When dealing with the Police just listen and comply with our orders. If you do not do what we ask or order you to do there will be action against you. In this instance he was offered a ride home. Free of charge. He was told to leave but came back and opened his mouth. Just do what the Police ask you to do. If not, you get a ride to the Police Department, you get to meet a judge and then will have a criminal record. Your life is stressful enough. Do not make us arrest you.
