Patrolman John Mulvihill conducted a motor vehicle stop at 11:10 p.m. on May 13, after he determined the license plates appeared be fictitious, the chief said.
Mulvihill then discovered that Mark Brayman, 47, had failed to register as a sex offender. He was taken to police headquarters, where his bail was set at $20,000, with no ten percent option. Sgt. James J. Smith and Detective William Cullen assisted, DiMichele said.
Brayman was taken to Community Medical Center in Toms River, where he attempted to escape custody and disarm a police officer. None of the officers were injured and Brayman remained in police custody, the chief said.
He was then charged with criminal contempt and attempting to disarm a law enforcement officer, then taken to the county jail, DiMichele said.
