LINDEN – Early Sunday morning, Linden police responded to a Roselle Street nightclub to disperse a large crowd that was leaving the facility and acting disorderly. Three people were arrested, according to police.
Officers responded to Nuno’s Pavilion at 2:28 a.m. on March 18. After breaking up a fight in the parking lot, an officer working security at the club arrested Terrance T. Pinkney, 23, of Jersey City. He was charged with disorderly conduct and hindering apprehension for allegedly giving police a false name.
When Pinkney was placed in a patrol car, another person later identified as Klye B. McRae, 23, also of Jersey City, approached police and demanded to know why Pinkney was arrested, according to authorities. After McRae allegedly refused to obey repeated requests to leave the area, McRae was placed under arrest and charged with failure to disperse. Both were transported to the county jail in lieu of $2,000 bail each.
Linden police called for mutual aid from neighboring police agencies and the Union County police to assist in dispersing the crowd. At 3:15 a.m., an individual, later identified as Patrick M. St. Fleur, 28, of Newark, allegedly refused to leave the parking lot and continued to yell and act in a disorderly manner, according to police.
After asking St. Fleur to leave several times, police placed him under arrest. St. Fleur allegedly struggled with the officers and refused to get into the patrol car while allegedly threatening Officers Jay Mohr and Martin Jedrzejewski. While being booked at headquarters, St. Fleur allegedly spit at Jedrzejewski.
St. Fleur was charged with disorderly conduct, failure to disperse, resisting arrest, and aggravated assault by throwing bodily fluids at a law enforcement officer, an indictable offense. He was taken to the Union County Jail in lieu of $7,000 bail.
There were no injuries reported, according to police.
