Hoboken’s doormen have to endure a lot of hassles—drunk bros, bad fakes, that annoying girl who keeps trying to talk to them as she smokes her 10th cigarette in the past hour…
Now we have a new item to add to that list—some guy allegedly having a crack pipe and throwing knives from his apartment window. Good times.
Christian Hoffman, 32, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, possession of a weapon, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of drug paraphernalia. He allegedly threw knives and other utensils from his third-floor Park Avenue window, while threatening to kill passersby.
A doorman at Turtle Club witnessed the incident unfolding and reported it to police—who responded to Hoffman’s apartment twice, the second time scaling a fire escape to get into Hoffman’s apartment.
Police found Hoffman hiding behind a door. Furthermore, they found a glass pipe plus an instrument used to grind crack cocaine, according to NJ.com.
No injuries were reported.
