Uber passenger assaults officers

PARSIPPANY — While patrolling Route 46 East, Patrol Officer Arthur Ohlsen observed a vehicle stopped in a lane of travel on Route 46 West in front of Arlington Plaza at 2:46 a.m. on February 24.

He conducted a motor vehicle stop and made contact with the driver, who was standing outside of his vehicle. The driver stated that he was an Uber driver and was just assaulted by the passenger. The driver did not report any injuries.

Officers made contact with the passenger, Elizabeth Suasnabar-Vila, 26, Denville.

Due to her being belligerent towards officers and her level of intoxication, an ambulance was requested to respond to the scene. While waiting for the ambulance to arrive, she attempted to walk away several times. Officers stopped her for her safety at which time she attempted punch Officer Denis DeMuro and also attempted to kick Officer Arthur Ohlsen. For her safety she was restrained until EMS arrived on scene.

Upon arrival of Rockaway Neck First Aid Squad, the officers escorted Ms. Suasnabar-Vila to the ambulance. While transferring her, she spit on both officers faces.

She was transported to Saint Clare’s Hospital for treatment.

She was subsequently processed and charged on a Complaint-Summons with Aggravated Assault-Throwing Bodily Fluids at Law Enforcement Officers. She was released on her own recognizance pending her court date.

Editors Note: A criminal complaint is merely an accusation. Despite this accusation, the defendant is presumed innocent until he or she is proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
