Teen Girl Punches Alcohol Detective During Underage Bust
A 19-year-old has been arrested after assaulting a Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control detective during an enforcement sweep throughout Bergen County, New Jersey.
Victoria Gorham allegedly kicked and punched ABC Detective Tammy Siano after trying to flee questioning at The Mason Jar in Ramapo. Gorham was placed under arrest and charged with aggravated assault on a police officer and underage drinking. Detective Siano did not require medical attention at the scene, but did sustain some bruising on her legs.
“Underage drinking is a serious matter and our enforcement actions prove that there will be serious consequences for both consuming underage and selling alcohol to those underage,” says Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control Director Michael Halfacre.
Halfacre says the ABC conducts undercover enforcement operations throughout New Jersey and its detectives have full police powers. The Division is the only statewide agency that exclusively enforces the Alcoholic Beverage Control laws.
