March 3, 2009
LONG VALLEY, NJ — Former Washington township planning board chairman Greg Jones was arrested Monday and charged with aggravated assault on an elementary school custodian, according to the Daily Record.
Custodian David Murphy and Jones were fighting in the parking lot of Flocktown-Kossmann Elementary School over an "old personal issue that lingers between the two men," the story stated.
When police responded to the scene, they found Murphy bleeding from wounds to his mouth, nose and forehead, the story noted.
Jones had fled the scene before police arrived, but later turned himself in and was released on his own recognizance after being charged, the story added.
According to the story, the Washington Township School District was closed Monday for a snow day, but custodians were on-site for snow removal efforts.
