INDEPENDENCE TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – A 36-year-old Great Meadows man was arrested last month in connection to an incident in Independence Township.
On Feb. 11, township officers were notified by a teacher of two juveniles fleeing their home and walking down Route 46 due to a hostile home environment. Officers searched the area where they were reported to have been but were unable to locate them, police said.
Officers then responded to Brian Nardone’s home, where the children fled from, and discovered him to be heavily intoxicated and unaware of where the children were, police said.
After an investigation with multiple state agencies, Nardone was charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and transported to the Warren County Jail, police said.
