Englishtown resident Andrew Micoletti, 23, was arrested by Englishtown Police on Friday, Oct. 19 for outstanding warrants, resisting arrest, and committing aggravated assault on a police officer.
Cpl. Michael MacInnes was off-duty in the Englishtown Liquors and Convenience Store when he recognized Micoletti as an individual with an outstanding failure to appear warrant out of Englishtown for a harassment charge, according to Englishtown Lt. Peter Cooke.
Cooke said that MacInnes phoned and alerted the on-duty police officer, Ptl. Nicola Costagliola. Costagliola confirmed the outstanding warrant out of Englishtown, as well as two other outstanding warrants out of Newark totaling $4,500, Cooke said.
Costagliola responded to the scene to arrest Micoletti with the assistance of MacInnes and Manalapan Police officers Joseph DeFillipis and Adam Sosnowski.
According to an arrest warrant issued by the Englishtown Police Department, Micoletti became argumentative when he was told he was under arrest by Costagliola and responded by clenching his fists and walking away.
When Costagliola grabbed Micoletti’s wrist to place him under arrest, Micoletti pulled away and started to attempt to flee, the warrant indicated. Costagliola and MacInnes used verbal commands and the use of force to gain control of Micoletti.
Micoletti was also charged with aggravated assault for allegedly attempting to cause bodily injury to Costagliola by falling to the ground while officers attempted to grab control of him.
Micoletti is currently remanded in Monmouth County Correctional Institute in default of $9,250 bail. The charges out of Englishtown added $5,000 more to his bail. His initial appearance in front of Judge John Colaninno is scheduled for Nov. 7.
