Robert Bell, 35, of Pleasantville, was charged yesterday morning, April 13, by the Pleasantville Police with contempt (4th degree), resisting arrest (disorderly persons offense), defiant trespass (disorderly persons offense), and two violations of the emergency orders. Bell entered a Dunkin Donuts without wearing a face mask and refused to leave when asked by employees. When police arrived, Bell started walking toward a nearby Wawa store and stated he would go there instead. Bell allegedly failed to obey officers directions to stop and resisted arrest. Bell was cited on April 11 and 12 for failing to wear a face mask at two other establishments. Based on his repeated, willful defiance of the emergency orders, Bell was charged by complaint-warrant.
