On Friday at approximately 12:18 p.m., Secaucus police responded to the Red Roof Inn located at 15 Meadowlands Parkway on a report of a welfare check, Chief Dennis Miller said in a statement.
The man, whose identity is being withheld to protect the identity of the juvenile, admitted to physically pushing one of his children to the ground as a means of discipline, Miller added following an email inquiry from HCV.
He added that based on the fact that the man, 36, appeared to be under the influence of an unknown narcotic, the overall condition of the room, as well as the children who were not fed that day, he was placed under arrest for endangering the welfare of two children.
The father was issued his complaint warrant and was subsequently transported to the Hudson County Correctional Facility, authorities said.
