Drug, Disorderly Conduct and Assault Charges Filed by Point Beach Police Aug. 1-8

Rate of criminal arrests for the week nearly four times as high as same time last year

Drug possession, simple assault, disorderly conduct and obstruction were among the most common charges among 126 filed recently by Point Beach police.

From Aug. 1 through Aug. 8, there were 41 criminal arrests, with 34 of them being adult arrests during the weekend on Aug. 6 and 7, four adults arrested during the weekdays and three juveniles arrested during the seven-day period, according to a statistical spreadsheet prepared by the Point Beach police department.

The weekly total of 41 is nearly four times higher than the total of 11 for the same week last year and 11 for 2009. There were 26 arrests in 2008 and 20 in 2007 during the same week.

During the same time period, there were eight adults cited with municipal ordinance violations during the weekdays and 77 during the weekend of Aug. 6 and 7, for a total of 85 for the week.

Of those, there were 20 violations of "urinating in public," the most common type of violation for the week and one that has been a big complaint from residents ever since Memorial Day weekend.

There were 15 "drinking in public" violations and 14 "misbehaving."

The total of 85 for the week is greater than 49 for the same week last year, but less than the 88 citations issued during the same week in 2009.

During last week, there were 45 first aid calls and 12 car accidents.

On 8/3/11 at 11:15 AM – Jospeh M. McGovern, 72, of Point Pleasant Beach, was arrested on Forman Avenue by Siculietano for lewdness.

In addition, state police tactical patrol units, nicknamed "tac pacs," worked in Point Beach on July 22, 23 and 29.

They made 55 motor vehicle stops, charged one driver with drunken driving and another driver had outstanding warrants, said State Police Acting Lieutenant Stephen Jones of the public information office.

Point Beach Detective Patrick Petruzziello said "tac pacs" have been working in Point Beach for many years, often helping out during the summers. He said state police do not give Point Beach police arrest reports with names, charges and other details, but provide that information to municipal court.

Petruzziello said he did not include the Corbally case in last week's police blotter because it would be up to state police to release that information since it is their case.

Michelle Sargent, municipal court clerk, said Corbally has pleaded not guilty and hired attorney William Cunningham.

Corbally's case will be moved to another jurisdiction because her father, Michael Corbally, is a Point Beach borough councilman. Municipal Court Judge James Liguori is appointed to a three-year term by the mayor with council consent, so a transfer to another jurisdiction is necessary to avoid any appearance of impropriety, Sargent said.

Of the 55 motor vehicle stops, state police wrote 11 tickets on the three days, including eight tickets on July 22, 1 on July 23 and two on July 29, Sargent said.

Point Pleasant Beach police said: "The media and public are reminded that criminal charges are merely accusations and these defendants are presumed innocent until and unless they are proven guilty.

 "Residents are reminded that they can call the Police Department Tips Hotline, to report any suspicious activity, at 732-892-0500 ext. 199.  Residents are also reminded that they may remain anonymous."

While the arrests are still high they have falling dramatically from the last report. It appears that the changes made by the Boardwalk and the added local and State Police seem to be working. Sorry to see that our Councilmans daughter has become one of the statistics. Hopefully it will be a lesson learned and she gets whatever help or treatment needed to get her through this difficult time. Thankfully she is ok and didnt become a victim. To many young people are injured or killed by DUI drivers.
pointman August 12, 2011 at 05:14 PM
I believe it involves giving false information to a police officer,,,,name ...ect
John Wayne August 13, 2011 at 01:22 AM
@pointman: It is still four times higher than the past two year and two times few years prior to the last two and it has nothing to do with the DUI Drivers that is separate incidents. There was 41 criminal arrests in two days, Aug. 6 and 7. that is 400% higher. Watch what you say because one of your family members can be a statistics also. Many individuals are stopped for DUI and it is not all young people. Next time look in other papers, most are middle age men and women. Do you really think everyone that has had a DUI needs to be in treatment? Drinking and Driving is dangerous for anyone and everyone. Some times drinking hits you all of a sudden and some don't even realize that it affected them the way it did, it sneaks up on you. I am glad it did not turn in to a tragedy for anyone but to say she needs treatment is harsh. Maybe a lesson learned but that is for many individuals I know. To bad who ever she was with or where she was drinking would have realized this if she didn't. Just remember don't spit in the glass of water that you might have to drink someday yourself.
sandinmytoes August 13, 2011 at 02:06 AM
Mr. Wayne, I noticed that 1/2 of the arrests were for urinating in public. I would expect that, with more police officers on patrol, we would have more arrests, especially for the types of non-violent behavior that are disruptive to quality of life, like urinating in public. The more we arrest for this type of behavior, the more the message gets out that people need to use proper facilities. I am more concerned about the arrest of a 72 year old PPB resident, arrested for lewdness. I can't seriously believe that you are trying to defend a DUI. "Some times drinking hits you all of a sudden and some don't even realize that it affected them the way it did, it sneaks up on you"???? I don't think anyone ever escaped punishment using that defense. The situation is terribly unfortunate, especially in light of her father's public position. Glad to hear that our local police didn't have to deal with that awkwardness. Thanks again to Councilman Lurie for reaching out to the State Police for additional help.
sandinmytoes August 13, 2011 at 02:06 AM
Thank you for the clarification.
Mike Corbally August 13, 2011 at 03:28 AM
As Carolynn's Dad I was relieved when I learned their was no one injured by her behavior, including herself. I am disappointed by her judgement. Her family will support her through the legal situation she created for herself. I will continue to support her through educational and therapy that she will be taking part on over the coming months. I am very proud of my girls owning their mistakes. That's how we learn.
pointman August 13, 2011 at 03:31 AM
John W,,, do you read what was written before you come back with a stupid remark. I said it was better than the last report,,not last year ,,not 2 years ago and that the extra cops may have helped. And what was so bad saying I hope she learned a lesson and gets help if needed. I also said too many young people are hurt or killed by DUI drivers,,didnt say all only young people drink. Your making yourself look foolish. Read the quote before you blaze away on your computer. Do you always have to comment on EVERYTHING.
Cathy Kelly August 13, 2011 at 04:47 AM
Mike,As a parent of two teenage girls,all I can say is Thank God she nor anyone else was hurt...we know as parents that our kids will make mistakes and we have to hold them accountable...I am sure that you will do what is needed for her to own up take responsibility and learn from her mistakes, It is heartbreaking as a parent but at least you are someone that is stepping up and getting involved...It is a far cry from those that allow their kids to do whatever they want and not take responsibility......Good Luck and again,as a parent,I truly feel for you.......
Cathy Kelly August 13, 2011 at 04:52 AM
Point,don't think for a moment that people are fooled by your posts,actually the bet was between you and two others of who would bring it up first,I bet on you because I truly think you have no class at all....guess what,,I won....thank you
John Wayne August 13, 2011 at 10:10 AM
@pointman, Stop being so full of yourself and nothing is stupid about it! I was comparing the last four years and 400% is still not acceptable and the report compared it to last year, so why don't you go read the report yourself. This is my opinion and you have yours. It is better than the last report? Why because the report was more days in the last report. It could be better than the last report, but you don't know that. It could because the summer is winding down, I can't wait for the next couple of report. Implementing more police would not work that fast. It is the beginning of next season you have to worry about by making sure the council supports the police budget instead of hemming and hawing. Personally I feel you wanted to through a dig to the councilmen who ever you are. You shouldn't even brought it up, that would be personal for any family and really none of your business. It is up to her father and herself and their business. Let them deal with it in private and I am sure he is a good father and get the help his daughter needs. You'r comment was unnecessary. Hopefully your family will not become a statistic. You are making yourself look foolish to even bring it up. Some things should be left alone when it comes to family situations. They don't need someone like you chiming in on their personal problems. Now you're being a HYPOCRITE, because it seems you comment on just about everything yourself FOOL!
John Wayne August 13, 2011 at 10:29 AM
@sandinmytoes: I was comparing the report to the last four years because the report gave us those figures, first time that I seen that. 400% higher is a huge difference in my opinion. I would not think adding police would not work that quick, we will see what the next report brings. It could because the less desirable just did not have the money to come last weekend, waiting to get paid, who cares, 400% higher is a lot for any town to handle. Maybe the last call should be everyone in the bars go to the bathroom instead of going out side on residents personal property. I am worried about the 72 year old PPB resident too, we certainly have some residents hiding here, perfect spot and town for them to hide in. Possibly one of the rooming houses? There is a lot of rentals here, hopefully landlords double and triple check their tenants and it is not always about the o'mighty dollar so many worry about here. I am not defending any one on a DUI, I am just stating the facts that it happens, Personally I don't drink, I don't like it and that is just me. I know many that love to drink and it is not just the young being irresponsible. I certainly don't condone drinking and driving, I am just stating the facts it happens and wish more would stop individuals to get in the car if they are aware the individual had to much, get involved and help out instead of looking the other way, be a friend because some don't realize they had to much and I not saying to use it as a defense.
John Wayne August 13, 2011 at 10:42 AM
@ sand, Addition to my prior comment. Yes I feel the situation is horrible but I am sure that Mr. Corbally will do everything in his power to help his own daughter and I am sure he will do what ever he has to as far as having her daughter own up to her mistake and get the help she needs. He appears to be someone who handles himself, he acts professional and seems to be responsible. Personally I feel Pointman was throwing a dig and I don't feel it is anyone's business in the first place and he should have never commented on this situation in the first place. It is personal family business and let them deal with it and work it out. I feel pointman new exactly what he meant with that comment and why did he even bring the councilmen's situation up. Then he has enough nerve to say I comment on EVERYTHING, and he has something to say on everything. Really? He crossed the line to me in my opinion but obviously only pointman is special and can have an opinion on EVERYTHING.
John Wayne August 13, 2011 at 10:45 AM
I know you will and I hope the residents show you respect and let you deal with your own problems and give you the space you needed. It really is none of their business.
John Wayne August 13, 2011 at 01:36 PM
Tasteless too!!

*** Sorry for all the typos****
Jim Nasium August 13, 2011 at 01:50 PM
I had the pleasure of being in the court audience recently. I was amazed how the prosecutor is allowed to intimidate people to pay fines instead of going to trial. There is no "conference", he just says "have a seat". The prosecutor and public defender conversations take place in front of the judge while court is in session. This should not be done in the courtroom. The icing on the cake was testimony by a new special officer that he can smell alcohol. Alcohol has no smell or odor, but this was allowed in this court! Watch out vacationers, if you patronize Jenkinsens it is automatically assumed you are drinking alcoholic beverages. If you have a container or cup in your hand while on the boardwalk they call it "Drinking in Public". Could be water, soda, or even beer, but you are drinking it and you will pay over $300.00 for it. Everyone expects law and order but this court is a revenue generating disgrace as is anyone who lies on the stand. Nobody ever complained about this ????
pointman August 13, 2011 at 02:07 PM
Ms Kelly. I thought we had a deal. A month ago I told you that I dont know you ,dont what to know you and theres no need to respond to my quotes. You have done that and I have not commented on any of your post until now. You see Ms Kelly I can separate politics from personal issues. This incident was published in the Patch and it a public record. I have see you and JW comment over and over about others who have been arrested why would the Councilmans daughter be exempt? .Read it again,I only wish her well and said nothing derogortory toward her or her father. Matter of fact the Councilman pretty much echoed my statement. Ms Kelly after the constant personel attacks against the Hennessey family you throw out there every chance you can when they make a comment your response is obsured .Lets face it ,if it was someone you were not supporting you would be jumping all over it with your" genuine,HaHa,just asking, nonsense". Please revert back to not responding, just asking,ha,ha.
NJDevils August 13, 2011 at 04:05 PM
Thankfully nobody was hurt as a result of Ms. Corballys mistake. I don't think the town could or would want to handle another Pat Flynn type of scandal.
JohnnyHurler August 13, 2011 at 04:07 PM
Mr. Corbally, I wish your family and your daughter the best. We all make mistakes and you're right we learn from them. If I could say anything to your daughter I would tell her to keep her chin up and remember this is unfortunate but it will pass and she shouldn't beat herself up over this. You do what you need to and move on It is a family matter and no one else's business. I really feel for her and know it seems very bad right now but it will get better. Chin up, hoping for the best outcome for her.
Former Beach Native August 13, 2011 at 04:33 PM
Everyone makes mistakes at some point or another during their lifetime. The important thing is to learn from them. Best wishes for this family.
Rich August 14, 2011 at 06:12 AM
I am so sorry that the thanks you get from the community you serve include cheap shots and other inappropriate comments from individuals hiding behind an alias. That does not "come with the territory". I am so glad that there were no injuries. Please continue to take the high road, the low road has plenty of traffic on this webpage. For me, the name calling and low blows are a bore. What's with all the negative and insulting stuff? Boring
sandinmytoes August 14, 2011 at 02:40 PM
Rich, lack of appreciation for community service has been a problem in this town for a while. On several occasions, I have suggested that people stop vesting the "sins of the father onto the child." Posts have attacked Councilman Hennessy for statements posted by his father. One post, which I found particularly disturbing, dragged Bilotti's grandchildren into the fray. It's these same group of posters who are now crying "foul." In addition, the current political climate is to blame the tourists for all that goes wrong in PPB. When an article about vandals spray painting was posted, people started in on the tourists. Those vandals were locals. Similarly, there are those who have been commenting on the troubles caused by touristing drunken twenty-somethings. Perhaps we've all learned a little something from this experience. Stereotypes should be avoided and "Do unto others as you would have done to you." I don't see any "low blows" here but I'm not as sensitive as some of the others posting. I do know that many punches are being pulled, punches which I'm sure other groups would not hesitate to throw if a different Councilman's child had been involved. It's the irony of the situation that has caused all of the attention here. Ms. Corbally is okay and no one was hurt, and she is certainly not the first twenty-something to experience this problem. It would be nice to see EVERYONE recognize more discretion in their posts on this forum going forward.
Charles Clark August 14, 2011 at 04:22 PM
@sandinmytoes, I do agree to a point. It seems all posts are doing the same no matter what side you are on and who you support personally. They are all guilty including some that are being attack. The hypocrisy and crying fowl is always different when it applies to one self , it is always different when the shoe is on a different foot. It is human nature. I am not saying I condone or it is right to attack and have lack of appreciation for community Service. Usually there is are reasons for backlash of what is being done and going on in a community. Obviously some sides feel they are being ignored and there is an unfairness that is happening in this town wether you agree or not or with a particular side. I agree with "Do unto others as you would have done to you" not only is it not being followed by anyone including the ones who are crying that they are being attacked. There is also" it takes two to tangle" "A taste or dose of your own medicine" and "Practice what you preach" When you have someone who is going to bring attention to an issue or going to shed light on an issue or someone, they should think before they do because most likely they are not the saint that they portray and someone in the community is going to know past history. Some of those who are being attacked have a very short memory and not that long ago they were either doing the same if not worse. Why would someone draw attention to themselves and this is what is happening in this community on all issues.
Charles Clark August 14, 2011 at 04:42 PM
In today's world, between what is going on everywhere and all resources and technology of today pretty much everything could be checked. Not to many could be fooled today. Most are insulted and offended when they are being lied right to their face. It is happening and many know it so if you don't want to be questioned, called out on something or attacked don't lie.
Beach_N8iv August 14, 2011 at 09:34 PM
Mr. Corbally, ignore the jerks who can't seem to separate what is a public and what should be private. You have PROVEN yourself to be a class act and many people in town know that.
Beach_N8iv August 15, 2011 at 04:27 PM
Just refuse to answer. You have every right to NOT say anything but you can and WILL be arrested for lying to a cop even though EVERYTHING that comes put of a cop's mouth can be a lie.
Cathy Kelly August 16, 2011 at 01:57 AM
Pointman,can you please post the comments that you say I posted of people that have been arrested..as you say,you have seen me post over and over again of people that have been arrested,I would love to see those posts. And your other comment of me attacking the Hennessee's. I have never confronted anyone from that family,I have simply responded when they confronted me...So for the future,maybe when you post,you would actually like to state the facts as opposed to just rambling and hoping people believe you....Just asking,,,hahaha
Cathy Kelly August 16, 2011 at 02:14 AM
on another note,I do agree with the Hennessee's when they say that people are cowards for hiding behind an alias and not owning up to the words they type!!!!!!
Beach_N8iv August 17, 2011 at 04:06 PM
Ms Kelly, some people have justifiable worries about retaliation from the powerful, influential, and even the self-important. You should already know this.
sandinmytoes August 17, 2011 at 04:25 PM
Amen to that, Beach_N8v. If you notice, there are quite a few people posting anonymously, yet Ms. Kelly only seems focused on those who post opinions opposite to her own. Why no interrogation of posters like John Wayne, Charles Clark, Blindbert? I've said it before and I'll say it again...if you don't like my opinions or don't believe what I have to say, then ignore me. Identity should be irrelevant, and I believe is only being sought for the reasons you mentioned...to further intimidate those who post opinions opposite some of those in power.
