Ahmad Battle, 23, of Jersey City, has been charged with obstruction of a governmental function, hindering apprehension, as well as an outstanding warrant, according to Police Capt. Eric Amato.

Battle was taken into custody at 12:43 a.m. Saturday from the area of 38th Street and Avenue C.

After officers observed him walking in a lane of traffic and throwing his used rubber gloves to the street (littering), they attempted to stop him and issue a summons for littering.

Battle ignored the officers’ several commands to stop walking away but ultimately complied. During the investigation, Battle provided false pedigree information in an effort to hinder his apprehension.

Once his true identity was determined, it was learned that he was wanted on an outstanding warrant issued out of Jersey City, police said.
