Two Wayne County Sheriff’s Narcotics officers were arrested after allegedly causing a disturbance in Newark.
The two, Sgt. Joseph Ayotte, an 11-year deputy, and Sgt. Jonathan Hall, an 8-year deputy allegedly went to an apartment on a personal matter while on duty and harassed the occupant until another resident called 911.
They were both arrested for criminal trespass and harassment. They were arraigned and released on their own recognizance.
The deputies also face departmental charges, and were suspended without pay until the both criminal and departmental charges are resolved. They could face termination.
