Jersey City Mayor Arrested in Bar Incident
Jersey City's mayor said he was arrested and roughed up by police over the weekend for intervening in an argument outside a beach bar.
Mayor Jerramiah Healy said he had just left Barry's Tavern in Bradley Beach - a bar owned by his sister - around 2 a.m. Saturday when he saw a couple arguing in a nearby parking lot. He said the man was jumping on the hood of his girlfriend's car.
After he calmly talked the man down, Barry said, police arrived and threw him on the ground and Maced him. When his wife tried to retrieve his glasses, police shoved her to the ground too, according to Healy.

Wait, don't the police work for the Mayor????
As the man quieted down, five police cars arrived -- including a car each from Avon and Neptune -- and police went after the girl, Healy said. The mayor said he stepped in to tell the officer the young man was more at fault.
Healy said officer Brown told him to get away, commanding he not point at him. Healy said Brown grabbed his arm and wrenched it behind his back, pushing him to the ground as his wife and son-in-law looked on.
Healy said he plans to file criminal charges against Browning.
