Hoboken cop assaulted in late-night pizza joint scuffle
HOBOKEN — A police officer was assaulted after trying to break up a rowdy argument in a pizza restaurant early yesterday morning, according to police reports.
Rory William Higgs, 23, of Nassau in the Bahamas, who gave a temporary address on Coles Street in Jersey City, was charged with disorderly conduct, aggravated assault on a police officer and resisting arrest, police said.
The police officer was in Imposto Restaurant & Pizza on Washington Street Sunday at 1:05 a.m. when he saw Higgs and a female companion arguing with another woman near a restroom, reports said.
After Higgs began yelling at the woman, the uniformed officer tried to separate the pair but Higgs pushed the cop in the chest, cursing him out, reports said.
The suspect then began to punch and kick the officer, police sources said. Higgs was finally arrested with the help of customers and police officers who arrived at the scene, reports said.
Higgs continued to yell obsenities at the officers at the station, police said. The arresting officer was treated at the headquarters by staff from the Jersey City Medical Center for pain in his right hand, reports said.
