The Record of Woodland Park reports that Joseph Parisi III of Englewood Cliffs faces a range of charges including possession of narcotics.

Officials from The Palisades Interstate Parkway Police tell the newspaper that Parisi was stopped around 1:45 a.m. Friday after a patrolman noticed the front bumper hanging off the black 2010 Lexus SUV he was driving.

An officer reported smelling marijuana during the stop and a vehicle search turned up a substance believed to be heroin.

Parisi’s attorney, Albert Wunsch, said his client would plead not guilty. Parisi has been released on his own recognizance.

The 22-year-old is the son of Englewood Cliffs Mayor Joseph Parisi Jr.
