Kearny mayor Alberto Santos says that Jersey City mayor Steve Fulop shoved one of his police officers tonight while attending the Hudson County Democratic county chairman election.
“He shoved one our police officers,” Santos told the New Jersey Globe. “One of our first-year police officers who was on the job was pushed by Mayor Fulop.”
Santos declined to say if charges would be filed against Fulop.
“I will speak with the chief of police tomorrow and got more specifics on the incident.”
Fulop did not immediately respond to a 11:02 PM request for comment via social media. If he does respond, his comment will be added to this story.
Earlier this evening, Fulop suffered an embarrassing defeat when political rival Amy DeGise, a Jersey City Board of Education member, won an estimated 135 of about 300 county committee votes in Jersey City that the mayor was supposed to control.
