JACKSON TOWNSHIP, NJ – On Wednesday, November 4th, Jackson police officers responded to Toms River Road on the report of a vehicle which was stopped in the roadway and a disturbance. Upon arrival, officers encountered a female outside of the vehicle and a male restraining another male in the rear seat of the vehicle who he claimed was intoxicated and attempting to drive. Officers ordered the male in the rear seat to exit the vehicle and he refused as he remained inside the vehicle, cursing and yelling at the officers.
After repeated attempts to have him exit the car so it could be safely moved from the roadway and away from passing traffic, the male was removed from the vehicle and placed under arrest after a struggle. It was later determined that the intoxicated male was being given a ride back to Trenton when he began a disturbance with the female driver, who had to quickly stop the vehicle to avoid other traffic.
The male, who was identified as Bashaun Miller, age 36 of Trenton, was processed and charged on a summons with obstruction and resisting arrest and Trenton released him on his recognizance on an outstanding warrant out of their jurisdiction. He was then transported to an area hospital for treatment due to his high level of intoxication.
