Complaints Against Cop Who Arrested State Assemblyman

A South Jersey municipal court judge has issued 13 complaints against a Washington Township police officer who stopped a New Jersey Assemblyman in July and charged him with drunken driving.

The charges include official misconduct and filing a false police report.

The Assemblyman, Paul Moriarty, alleges he was pulled over on a bogus allegation that he cut the officer off and subsequently charged with driving while intoxicated though he’d had nothing to drink.

A dashboard video of the motor vehicle stop taken from the officer’s patrol car appears to back up the lawmaker’s claims. Moriarty did not take a Breathalyzer test.

The 56-year-old Assemblyman filed a 27-count complaint last week.

His allegations were reviewed by a judge, who signed off on half and dismissed half.

The DWI allegation is pending.
