It's been three weeks since the ugly incident on Parkside Avenue where supporters of Mayor Tony Mack verbally assaulted and tried to intimidate people collecting signatures on recall petitions. The details of the incident have been reported first hand by Kevin Moriarty, the target of most of the vitriol spouted by city employees Rodney Washington and Terrance Bailey.
Well, for those who are embarrassed or upset that these men ever put on the uniform of a City of Trenton employee, you ain't seen nothing yet.
Seems our friend Mr. Washington has a little problem. Or two. Maybe three.
You see, Rodney Washington was arrested in Ewing Township back on April 10, 2011. According to the report, Mr. Washington was unable to pass any one of the three field sobriety tests administered by the arresting officer. At the Ewing Township Police headquarters an inventory of Mr.Washington's personal property what appeared to be a half smoked marijuana cigarette was also found.
Mr. Washington was issued a second summons for refusing to submit to the breathalyzer test.
The arrest report also shows that it was discovered that Mr. Washington was the subject of a warrant.
So there you have it, folks. A personal friend of the mayor, hired for a city job days after Mayor Mack took office. Outstanding warrant, DUI, possession.
Oh yeah, and he's a "video star" too. Remember this little piece of thug art?
Makes you proud to be a Trentonian, doesn't it?
Sign the petition already.
