The office of the state attorney general has released information on two local incidents over the past week which resulted in charges for violating Gov. Phil Murphy’s executive orders related to the coronavirus pandemic.
Zachary Novosellar, 62, of Lakewood, was charged April 28 by Lakewood police for hosting an engagement party at his residence on 14th Street. Police found 25 to 30 cars parked on the street and approximately 20 people standing in front of the residence, the statement said, without social distancing. Novosellar said he arranged for the parties to meet to pick up engagement gifts.
In a bizarre case out of Point Pleasant Borough, Jaymee Tice, 37, a borough resident, was charged on April 26 by police with second-degree terroristic threats during an emergency. Tice allegedly entered the driver’s seat of an occupied vehicle while the driver was inside getting ice cream at Sundaes on Route 88. The car owner saw Tice and returned to her vehicle. She managed to get Tice out, the statement said, but Tice allegedly shouted at her, saying, “Do you want corona? Do you want to die?”
