Intoxicated man called 911 because bar kicked him out for life, police say

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – A Hackettstown man is facing an additional charge for allegedly calling 911 to complain that he was kicked out of a local bar for life, according to police.

The original incident occurred on May 25, at around 11:33 p.m., when officers responded to Marley’s Gotham Grill, located at 169 Main St, in reference to a dispute in progress, police said.

While officers were responding, a man named Randie called 911 to complain about allegedly being kicked out of the bar, police said.

When officers arrived, the officers observed Randie Banghart, 21, of Hackettstown, NJ, outside of the business yelling and cursing at bar staff. The officers determined that Banghart was allegedly intoxicated.

Banghart was charged that night with disorderly conduct and released pending a court appearance.

The investigating officer reviewed the audio of the 911 call that Banghart placed on May 25 and it was determined that he dialed 911 because he was kicked out and banned for life from the bar, police said.

Banghart was charged on June 13 with fourth-degree calling 911 without needing 911 service and released pending a court appearance.
