At 7:20 a.m., Roselle Park Police responded to a disturbance on the 10 block of Warren Avenue, an area that was temporarily cordoned off to allow a large crane access to a driveway of a local business. At the scene, police found an occupied vehicle parked in the ‘Emergency – No Parking’ zone. A witness reported that the vehicle’s occupant had just removed the temporary ‘No Parking’ signs and discarded them in the street. The occupant of the vehicle was found to be a 53-year-old female resident of Warren Avenue, Marlin J. Schneeberger, who refused several requests to move her vehicle to comply with the temporary parking restrictions. Mrs. Schneeberger eventually moved her vehicle but quickly returned to the scene.
According to the police report, Mrs. Schneeberger – pacing back and forth – aggressively approached police officers and workers at the scene. She then screamed at both for allowing the crane to enter the adjacent driveway. Mrs. Schneeberger continued her irate behavior and called 9-1-1 on the police officers she was speaking to at her residence. Mrs. Schneeberger’s behavior reportedly continued to disturb the neighborhood and obstruct the duties of the responding police officers. She was then advised that she was under arrest but resisted and violently fought the officer’s efforts to take her into custody.
Meanwhile, Marlin’s 22-year-old daughter, Maryellen Schneeberger, allegedly attacked the police officers trying to arrest her mother. After a brief but violent struggle, both were detained and arrested. One of the police officers suffered a knee injury and sustained several lacerations to his arm during the assault.
Marlin J. Schneeberger was charged with Obstruction of Justice, Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest, and Creating a False Public Alarm. Maryellen M. Schneeberger was charged with Aggravated Assault and Obstruction of Justice. Both were later released pending an appearance in Union County Superior Court.
