Drunken Man Allegedly Assaults Police Officers Who Gave Him Ride Home
Mount Laurel Police reported the arrest of a Township man, Gary F. Piserchia, 56 for resisting arrest and assaulting police officers.
Police say they were alerted by a report of an intoxicated and disorderly person on Route 73 near Lukoil gas station. When the officers responded, they found Piserchia under the influence of alcohol.
The officers gave him a ride back to his house, but apparently he wasn’t particularly grateful. Once they arrived at his residence, the officers say he became disorderly, resisted arrest and assaulted the officers while he was being taken into custody. No officers were injured.
Piserchia was committed to Burlington County Jail in lieu of $12,000 bail. He was charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and driving while intoxicated.
