Man arrested after alleged knife wielding
New York City resident Christopher Spillane, 28, was arrested and charged on Wednesday Dec. 27 at 12:01 a.m. with two counts of aggravated assault on law enforcement, terroristic threats, possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and resisting arrest.
Officers Frank Lombardo and Harold Milne responded to a bar on the 200 block of Washington Street on the report of a fight and someone with a knife. Milne and Lombardo arrived to find several other officers up the street with a man who fit the description they were given. Officers were with the male who was being placed under arrest. Due to a pre-existing injury and because he was wearing a metal brace, Spillane was handcuffed in front to prevent further injury to his arm, according to a police press release.
According to the release, he and a relative left the bar in an agitated state and allegedly began to strike the glass with an object, threatening to kill the person. After several unsuccessful attempts to damage the glass he allegedly fled the scene. Officers later determined that the metal object was not a knife but a fork that Spillane allegedly discarded before his arrest. Spillane allegedly began to fight the officer and struggle when they tried to place him inside the police vehicle. He allegedly attempted to try and bite an officer but failed to do so. He also allegedly attempted to strike officers with his metal braced arm. The officers were able to get him in the police vehicle and transported to headquarters for processing. Spillane’s relative was stopped for the investigation to determine her role in the incident. She was allegedly uncooperative and in an agitated state. She allegedly failed to comply with the officer’s orders and was charged with disorderly conduct. She was arrested and given a summons to appear in court.
At headquarters, Christopher Spillane allegedly dropped to the floor continuously and at one point swung his arm and struck officer Lombardo in the eye, cutting him.
He was placed under restraints and allegedly threatened to return at a later time to shoot a sergeant, before he was transported to Hoboken University Medical Center for treatment.
Ex-marine allegedly assaults officers
Woodland Park residents Vincent Bordano, 24, and Eileen Boyce, 30, were arrested and charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, and obstruction on Dec. 24 at 3:08 a.m.
While on patrol, officers Michael Straten and Vincent Lombardi saw pushing and shoving near 74 Hudson St. Special Police Officer Kyle Seper and Sergent Edward Sellick arrived to assist with the crowd. Straten spoke with Bordano, an ex marine who was angry over someone allegedly striking his girlfriend, Boyce. He was unable to identify the person and he allegedly became verbally aggressive toward the officers. He walked away as Seper and Sellick spoke with Boyce but later returned. Due to Boyce’s alleged intoxicated state the officers called for an ambulance. Bordano allegedly didn’t want Boyce to go to the hospital, and he allegedly began to pull Boyce away from the officer. Lombardi stopped them from leaving and then Boyce allegedly punched Lombardi in the chest, causing Boyce to lose balance and fall.
Bordano, seeing this, allegedly pushed Lombardi. Lombardi and Sellick attempted to place Bordano under arrest but he allegedly resisted by tensing his arms and refusing to place his them behind his back. Lombardi and Bordano fell to the ground during the struggle and allegedly continued to fight. As the officers attempted to gain control, Boyce allegedly struck Officer Lombardi in his head with her knee, causing him to fall over.
Lombardi suffered several cuts and a head injury. Sellick and Seper tried to place Boyce under arrest, who allegedly resisted by kicking and flailing her arm and refusing to comply with their orders. They were able to regain control and place her under arrest.
Bordano allegedly continued to resist arrest by holding his arms close to his body to prevent handcuffing. Lombardi tried using his canister spray but it didn’t work. After several minutes the officers were able to place Bordano under arrest. Medical attention was requested for all the parties involved. Lombardi was on injured duty for several days but has since returned to full duty and all the other officers involved did not receive serious injuries. Both Bordano and Boyce were treated for minor cuts and intoxication. Boyce received a summons and Bordano was remanded to the Hudson County Correctional Facility.
