Ocean County authorities have cleared a Lakewood police officer who scuffled with a rabbi from any wrongdoing.
Officials say the officer acted properly when he arrested the Rabbi in June. The rabbi was charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and obstructing justice.
Charges against the rabbi will probably be presented to a grand jury.
Bursztyn’s arrest touched off demonstrations by large crowds of Orthodox Jewish residents outside police headquarters as reported then at VOS IZ NEIAS.
