Someone’s #SundayFunday got a little messy, as Hoboken Police had to mop up after a violent vaping vandal this past weekend.
A little after 8 p.m. on Sunday, September 22, Hoboken Police Officers Bullock and Huggins arrived on the scene 333 River Street after calls came in of someone punching and kicking cars in the area.
Officers claim they observed Calvin Patterson (age 24, of Hillsborough, NJ) approach an unknown male and strike him with a closed fist. Officers broke up the fight, and the unnamed victim was not seriously hurt and refused any medical treatment.
As the officers attempted to handcuff Patterson, he reportedly pulled away and continued to struggle with the police officers before they were finally able to subdue him and transport him to headquarters.
Per Hoboken Police, Patterson then refused to allow the officers to fingerprint him during processing and began to urinate on himself and on the precinct floor. A search found the defendant to have a cartridge with THC oil, along with vape pipe.
Patterson has been charged with Possession of CDS Marijuana, Poss of CDS Paraphernalia, Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest, Simple Assault, Refusal to be Fingerprinted, Criminal Mischief. He was given a summons to appear in court and released.
This came on the heels of another incident in which Michael Monica (age 23, of Wharton, NJ) was charged with aggravated assault after Detectives Colon and Quinones allegedly witnessed him strike another male in the face at 2:22 p.m. on Sunday near 89 River Street, knocking the victim unconscious. Officers apprehended Monica a short distance away, while the victim was transported to the local hospital where he was later discharged.
