Disturbance at Mountain Club

PARSIPPANY — Multiple Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Officers responded to the Mountain Club Complex, 2467 Route 10 East, on a report of a possible assault, on Tuesday, April 2 at 3:03 p.m.

Upon their arrival, the officers spoke with management personnel who advised them that a male, identified as Mr. Rafael Cintron, 21,  Morris Plains, attempted to punch a maintenance employee, but the employee was able to avoid being struck.

The officers were further advised that Mr. Cintron stated he had a gun and threatened the employee. Management personnel stated that the maintenance employees were following Mr. Cintron because he entered their offices earlier, once wearing only underwear and the second time clothed, but requesting where to buy marijuana.

Officers made contact with Mr. Cintron after locating his vehicle in the complex, however, he failed to obey their commands and moved both hands towards the center of his abdomen.

After a brief struggle, he was placed under arrest. He was transported to Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Headquarters for processing and was charged with Obstructing the Administration of Law, a Disorderly Persons Offense and Resisting Arrest, a Disorderly Persons Offense.

He was released on his own recognizance pending his court date.
