Fair Lawn NJ Man Allegedly Eludes Police, Assaults Officer, Smears Blood and Vomit in His Jail Cell
Aggravated Assault Charges Fair Lawn NJ
A Fair Lawn NJ man allegedly brawled with police and then later urinated and smeared blood in a jail cell.
A Bergen County police officer attempted to stop 30-year-old Evgeni Yampolski for a traffic violation in Paramus, New Jersey. However, Mr. Yampolski failed to stop for the officer. A chase ensued, with the officer following Mr. Yampolski to the suspect’s home in Fair Lawn, NJ.
According to authorities, Mr. Yampolski got out of his vehicle and struggled with the officer.
Additional police officers were called to the scene; they helped to restrain Mr. Yampolski. Unfortunately, one of the officers suffered a shoulder injury and various cuts. He was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center for treatment.
Mr. Yampolski, a Russian-born citizen of Israel, was arrested and brought to police headquarters.
He was charged with aggravated assault of a police officer, criminal mischief, driving while intoxicated (DWI), and eluding police.
According to police, Mr. Yampolski later urinated on himself, spit on officers, and smeared blood on the wall inside his jail cell at Bergen County Police headquarters in Mahwah, New Jersey.
DWI is a traffic offense in New Jersey, it’s not a criminal charge. If he is convicted, it appears on his driver’s history abstract but not on a criminal case history (known as “CCH”) background check. The charges for aggravated assault on a police officer and eluding police are felony charges and will be graded as 2nd, 3rd, or fourth degree crimes depending on the nature and circumstances of the alleged offense. Finally, criminal mischief can be a felony or misdemeanor (disorderly persons) charge depending on the amount of the alleged damage done to property.
If the defendant has no prior record, he may be eligible to apply for admission into the Pre-Trial Intervention program for first time offenders (known as “PTI”). This will not resolve the DWI but it will resolve the criminal charges. If he successfully completes the PTI probationary period, then the charges will be dismissed.
