A Marlboro Police Officer is accused of punching a Colts Neck woman in the face, breaking her orbital and then falsely arresting and imprisoning the woman, according to a federal lawsuit filed in Trenton last week.
Officers Donna Gonzalez and Joseph Meglio forced themselves into the Colts Neck home of Marlene Mazur on January 24, 2016 in response to a dispatch call reporting an argument between a man and a women, according the the suit filed by Freehold attorney Thomas Mallon on behalf of Mazur. The complaint says that Mazur’s husband had gotten her car stuck in the snow and that by the time the Marlboro officers arrived at the Boundary Road home, the husband and their son had dug out the car and parked it in the garage.
Gonzalez and Meglio entered the home and demanded to speak to the husband. Gonzalez pushed Mazur against a wall and gestured as if she was going to punch her while Meglio followed the son upstairs and entered a room where the son’s children were staying.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Colts Neck, Marlboro, Monmouth County News | Tags: Chief Bruce Hill, Colts Neck, Marlboro, Marlboro Police Department, Marlene Mazur, Mayor Jon Hornik, Officer Donna Gonzalez, Officer Joseph Meglio | 7 Comments »
