HANOVER TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – Two men are facing several charges after police investigated a complaint of them refusing to leave a room at the Red Carpet Inn in Hanover Township last week.
On Feb. 16, officers responded to the Red Carpet Inn for unwanted guests refusing to leave a room. Upon officer’s arrival, Benjamin Drumm, 54, of Towaco and Michael Reese, 37, of Hackettstown were both highly intoxicated and refused to leave a room after being asked to by the rooms owner, police said.
While officers were attempting to remove Drumm and Reese, they both became unruly, combative and began arguing and resisting the officers on scene, police said.
Both were charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. Drumm was additionally charged with harassment and Reese with obstruction. Both were released pending a court appearance, police said.
