Apparently suicidal Weehawken cop under investigation
A Weehawken police officer who may have attempted suicide last week is reportedly under investigation by the Hudson County Prosecutor’s office in a matter related to his employment as a police officer.
According to a report on northjersey.com, the investigation began at the local level and was referred to the Hudson County Prosecutor on the same day the officer ingested the drugs.
On April 29 it was reported that a Weehawken police officer was found in and out of conciousness on Campgaw Mountain in Mahwah after a friend became concerned that he had taken a dangerous mix of non-prescription medications.
The 42-year-old officer was the subject of a five-hour search after police tracked pings from his cell phone. His car was in the camping area.
The friend reportedly told police that the 22-year police veteran had taken Tylenol PM, aspirin, and Nyquil.
