Jason Anderson, 44, of Secaucus, was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, obstructing the administration of law, and possession of prohibited fireworks, Miller said in a statement.

Anderson was also found to have one outstanding warrant issued out of South Bound Brook in the amount of $750, one $500 outstanding warrant issued out of North Bergen, and one outstanding warrant issued out of Secaucus for $100.

According to Miller, the Secaucus Police Department received a noise complaint from residents of the Riverside Station Boulevard. Upon arrival, Anderson was argumentative and refused to comply with the officers orders.

“He physically interfered with the investigation and resisted arrest … extensive efforts were made to deescalate the situation prior to using force, however they were unsuccessful and the minimal amount of reasonable force was used to effect the arrest,” added Miller.

No injuries were sustained by the police or the defendant and numerous illegal fireworks were seized.

Anderson was issued his complaint summons and was unable to post bail for the outstanding warrant issued by the South Bound Brook Police Department and their officers  responded to Secaucus Police Headquarters and took him into custody.
