Holiday City Man Charged With Resisting Arrest, Obstruction At Clubhouse

A Holiday City man apparently upset about an early pool closing has been charged with resisting arrest and obstruction of the administration of the law, Police Cheif Karin T. DiMichele said.

Patrolman Al Foca responded to the Holiday City Clubhouse #2 at 6 p.m. on July 2 on a threats complaint. Witnesses told the officer that Steven Cosentino, 62, Jamaica Boulevard, made threats to harm others because of a dispute about the pool closing early, the chief said.

When Foca tried to speak to Cosentino, Cosentino became "disorderly and aggressive" towards Foca. Foca tried to place him under arrest, and Cosentino physically resisted, DiMichele said.

Cosentino was eventually put in handcuffs and secured. He was taken to police headquarters, where he was processed, then taken to the Ocean County Jail in Toms River in default of bail, the chief said.

Cosentino created the problem which resulted in somebody calling the cops. It is hardly the cop's fault. The guy seemed to be out of control.

Even Seniors can sometimes be abusive aholes... I've seen two or three in action in my short time here in HC. Loud mouth cranky ol' men with anger issues and attitude problems. Unhappy, bitter old people.

He has too much time on his hands. I am sure there was a very good reason for the pool closing. He should be ashamed of himself if the police had to be called. I heard about this incident. Absolutely ridiculous.
