A Lodi man assaulted two police officers who responded to a call of a fight he had with his brother, authorities said.
Officers found the injured brother with a broken wrist Thursday in the driveway of the Westminster Place home, Chief Donald Scorzetti said.
The day before, the brother told police, 35-year-old Amado Romero assaulted their father.
While talking with him, the officer noticed Romero trying to leave.
They “approached him to obtain his version of the events, at which time [Romero] became further agitated and combative and assaulted two of the three officers on scene,” Scorzetti said.
Romero eventually was subdued, arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, simple assault and resisting arrest, the chief said.
He remained held Friday in the Bergen County Jail pending a detention hearing in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
