LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston Municipal Court settled three cases for the week of July 1 through July 7.
Aries Bluestone-Weaver of Morris Planes was charged with violating Livingston’s skate park regulations for not wearing a helmet, using the facilities without registration, creating a disturbance by cursing at a police officer, and with eluding a police officer.
The charge of eluding an officer was dismissed as part of plea agreement. For each of the remaining two charges Bluestone-Weaver received fines of $150 and 33$ in court cost fees.
Jonah Williams of Newark was charged with theft for attempting to steal $144 from Men’s Mart at the Livingston Mall and with impersonating a law enforcement officer, specifically by pretending to be an officer in an attempt to inhibit store employees from attempting to stop his theft.
