Marcella Friedman faces an official misconduct charge.

The 50-year-old Hamilton Township (Mercer County) resident allegedly confronted the men Oct. 31 as they sold generators at a roadside location in Burlington County. Friedman, who is communications systems technician, was wearing a field jacket with the state police logo and carrying a handheld police radio.

Friedman allegedly threatened to fine the men and confiscate their merchandise, but said they could continue selling generators if they gave her one for free, which they did.

Friedman gave the generator to a relative, who sold it to an unknowing third party.
