The Spring Lake Police Department made several arrests this past week as a result of a physical altercation involving minors from the borough, Sea Girt, Manasquan and Brielle. A large group of the juveniles were fighting in the early morning and the incident resulted in at least one juvenile being hospitalized. Alcohol was apparently involved in the incident. Juvenile Charges are pending for assault, possession of alcohol underage, and vandalism.
The charges in this case will undoubtedly make their way to Monmouth County Superior Court. Juvenile cases are presided over by Judge Iadanza and Judge McGann, and neither are a push over when it comes to kids crossing the line. You can anticipate some differed dispositions for the lesser players and probation, at a minimum, for those involved in anything serious (e.g. aggravated assault).
