DOVER – Two State Police troopers who stopped to check on a disabled car ended up placing the driver under arrest when a check of his credentials showed that he had a warrant issued by the New Brunswick Police Department for aggravated assault and attempted murder.
Chad Butler, Jr., 21 of New Brunswick, was transported to the Pleasant Plains Station where he was charged by the State Police for Contempt of Court before being turned over to New Brunswick police.
Just before 3 a.m. on Sunday morning, May 20, Troopers Ronnie Repasky and Shaun Murray from the Garden State Parkway Bass River Station spotted a car parked on the shoulder of the Garden State Parkway near milepost 82. They pulled behind the vehicle and approached the driver to see if he needed any assistance, and discovered the warrant when they checked his credentials.
The charges against Butler are merely accusations; he is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
