FAIR LAWN BOROUGH, NJ (Bergen County) – A Sussex County man accused of driving while intoxicated last month allegedly spit in a Fair Lawn officer’s face.
On March 28, at 3:00 a.m., officers responded to Ontario Avenue at Henderson Boulevard in Fair Lawn Borough for a possible driver that was passed out behind the wheel, police said.
After police arrived, officers were able to wake-up Mackenzie Isgro, 24, of Hamburg. After a roadside sobriety test could not be performed, he was arrested and then became combative toward officers, police said.
Isgro was transported to police headquarters and then he allegedly spit in an officer’s face through the screen of the holding room door as he attempted to read paperwork to him, police said.
Isgro was charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, throwing bodily fluid at a law enforcement officer, two counts of resisting arrest, reckless driving and driving while intoxicated, police said.
Isgro was released from custody and transported to Hackensack University Medical Center by Fair Lawn Volunteer Ambulance for treatment, police said.
