Police: Dispute Over Cell Phone Charger Lands Man In Hospital

Police shieldA fight over a cell phone charger led to a man being sent to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, New Brunswick, police said.

Police reported that on Feb. 25, a fight between two men broke out in front of a Pickering Place home. Police said the two men – identified only as a 41-year-old Asian man and a 42-year-old black man – worked together and had a dispute about a cell phone charger that was left in a company van.

Police said the 42-year-old went to the other man’s house, where he allegedly called him out to “settle the matter.”

The 42-year-old, police said, grabbed the other man by the crotch and shoulder in an attempt to slam him to the ground, but the other man fought him off, kicking his assailant in the thigh.

Police said the man complained of a broken leg, but that did not appear to be the case.

Both men were told of the complaint signing procedure, police said.
