New Jersey Man Arrested After Casino ‘Disturbance’

KING OF PRUSSIA PA – A 35-year-old New Brunswick NJ man was arrested by Pennsylvania State Police on a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest, and also faces charges of harassment, public drunkenness, and disorderly conduct, following a “physical contact” incident that occurred on the gaming floor of the Valley Forge Casino Resort, according to a Monday (Aug. 22, 2022) report.

A casino security guard was kicked in the head “during the process,” the report added. The extent or severity of his or her injuries, if any, was not indicated.

Troopers from the Troop K Barracks in Skippack, on duty at the casino for the state Bureau of Gaming Enforcement, said they were contacted Aug. 15 (Monday) at 11:30 p.m. regarding “an intoxicated patron” who was asked to leave the premises “for causing a disturbance on the floor.” He refused to leave, troopers wrote, and then “threatened to fight security guards.”

The patron, later determined to be the New Brunswick man, “was taken into custody” by the security team “and physically resisted.” That’s when the head blow to the security guard allegedly occurred, troopers stated.

Charges against the man were said to be filed Aug. 16 (Tuesday) in the Bridgeport court of Magisterial District Justice James P. Gallagher.
