A Little Falls man was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge after shouting profanities at police officers in front of children, police said.
Officers Thomas Dinkelspiel, Matthew LaManna and Robert Smolen were called to 7-Eleven on North Beverwyck Road at 8:15 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10, on a report of an assault in progress.
The store manager told police that a man who appeared to be intoxicated entered the store. The manager asked the man to leave the store when he became angry and started shouting obscenities, said Parsippany Community Relations Officer Earl Kinsey.
Police then found a man fitting the description the store manager gave walking on North Beverwyck Rd. He was identified as Larry Guay, 58 of Little Falls, police said.
“The man began shouting profanity at the officer in the presence of approximately 40 adults and children that were in the area,” said Kinsey. “He then turned and began to walk away from the officer.”
“He was ordered to stop multiple times, but refused,” he said.
Guay was placed under arrest after a brief struggle with officers and charged with disorderly conduct.
He was released with a summons pending a court appearance.
