Officers Attacked After Driving Drunken Man Home, Police Say

Mount Laurel Police say they gave a township man a ride—and he wasn't particularly grateful.

Officers Attacked After Driving Drunken Man Home, Police Say

He could have just said "Thank you."

Mount Laurel Police say they arrested a township man for allegedly attacking two officers after they gave him a ride home earlier this week.

Police say they were called to the Lukoil station on Route 73 Tuesday for a report of an intoxicated disorderly person. Officers came across Gary F. Piserchia, 56, of the unit block of Edinburgh Lane, and gave him a ride back to his house.

Once they arrived at his residence, police say Piserchia became disorderly, resisted arrest and assaulted the officers while being taken into custody. He was charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and driving while intoxicated.

Piserchia was committed to Burlington County Jail in lieu of $12,000 bail.

No officers were injured.
