Fight broke out at Basket of Cheer

PARSIPPANY — Multiple Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Officers responded to the Basket of Cheer, 149 North Beverwyck Road, on Friday, February 15 at 9:35 p.m. on a report of a large fight.

Upon their arrival, they observed Dennis Lake, 44, Hopatcong, who was outside the bar and had a belt wrapped around his hand.

Patrol Officers A. Ohlsen and J. Mendez immediately detained Mr. Lake. After a brief investigation, it was determined that a fight occurred outside of the bar and the 40 year old male victim received injuries to his head after Mr. Lake struck him with the belt.

Mr. Lake was placed under arrested and transported to Parsippany Police Headquarters for processing. He was charged with One count of Third Degree Aggravated Assault with a Weapon; One count of Third Degree Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose.

He was transported to the Morris County Correctional Facility. He was subsequently released from custody on Sunday, February 17 after his initial appearance in Court.

Editor’s 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.
