“New Jersey State Police put their lives on the line every day to protect all of us,” said Acting Attorney General Hoffman. “We must, in turn, protect them by aggressively prosecuting anyone who seeks to harm them.”

Daren Rebel, 20-years-old, faces two counts of first-degree attempted murder, one count of second-degree aggravated assault, one count of second-degree attempted aggravated assault, one count each of second- and third-degree resisting arrest and four counts of third-degree aggravated assault.

“Anyone who tries to harm a police officer will face stern justice,” said Division of Criminal Justice Director Elie Honig. “Each first-degree attempted murder charge here carries a sentence of 10 to 20 years in prison upon conviction.”
