Drug charges among many after 2 New Jersey officers injured

When a person is facing a confrontation with an authority figure, they may react instinctively. Unfortunately, this reaction can sometimes create legal complications for them if that interaction involves law enforcement officers. In fact, one man now faces drug charges, among other accusations, following an interaction with officers in New Jersey.

The incident that led to the 30-year-old man's arrest reportedly happened on a day in May. Officers claim that they responded to a call about a sick man just after 2 a.m. When they arrived at the scene, they claim they discovered the defendant in the vehicle, using drugs. They say they ordered the man to exit the vehicle, but he drove away instead.

Two officers were reportedly injured in the incident; one injured his hand while the other is said to have suffered a head injury described as minor. Both were treated and released. Officers in another jurisdiction were able to stop the man based on the license plate number provided by the original officers and make an arrest.

The man now faces multiple charges, including possession of heroin, resisting and eluding arrest, aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a weapon. Regardless of the claims made by law enforcement officials, a person is presumed innocent unless sufficient evidence is provided that proves guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. This standard, purposefully set high, is often difficult to meet. Those facing drug charges -- and others -- in New Jersey often choose to seek guidance from a legal professional who can ensure that they are fully prepared to make informed decisions.
