A Brick man is charged with burglarizing multiple vehicles and biting a Lakewood police officer who arrested him Monday.

Rahmel Jones, 26, was arrested after police received a call about a car burglary in the area of Commonwealth Drive in Lakewood, township police said in a statement. After Officer Matthew McKee was first on the scene to investigate,
officers Alex Pedre and Michael Ruiz responded as back up and observed aman  fitting the description of the burglar walking in the area, according to police.

When the suspect, later identified as Jones, saw the officer he fled, the statement said, but Pedre and Ruiz gave chase and located him in the rear yard of a Liberty Drive home. The officers ordered Jones to the ground but he ignored their orders, the statement said, however Pedre and Ruiz were able to place him in custody with the use of compliance holds and pepper spray.

During the struggle, however, Pedre was bitten by Jones and Ruiz injured his knee. Both were treated and released back to duty, according to police.

A further investigation by Detective LeRoy Marshall revealed that Jones had been involved in several burglaries to local motor vehicles, police say. Proceeds of those burglaries resulted in the theft and use of the victims credit cards at local shopping malls and grocery stores, the statement said.

Jones was charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, burglary, theft and receiving stolen property. His bail was set at $75,000 cash.

Jones, according to the statement, was also found to have an outstanding warrant from Howell Township for charges stemming from the use of a stolen credit card in a previous case in Lakewood in which a car was burglarized and a credit card was stolen and used back in June. Bail for the Howell Township warrant was an additional $8,500.

Gee what's taking Al scumbag Sharpton to step in and protect this piece of crap and say he blames the economy and society and this scumbags upbringing that causes him to steal and break into hardworking peoples cars or homes. WTF. All I know is this scumbag should be jailed for up to 7-10 and have someone burglerise this dirtbags A$$hole and rip it apart. Is it true that the police caught this scumbag by stepping on the back of waist of his pants because he wore them so low. LoL. He probably fell when his pants fell to his ankles. All I can say is , try to steal from me and you will spend life in the ground. Or be severely maimed. I work hard for everything I own and have. Typical scumbag with his smirk on his face. His picture should have been taken with his teeth knocked out. I'm not at all a racists. But when I watch the news everyday all I see and hear about is black on black crimes and black on white crime and also murder. Hey Al Sharpton what do you have to say about that. What's your Tawana Brawley excuse about the unbelievable high rate of crime and murder by the people you stand by and support or should I say chase after like the typical ambulance chasing scumbag lawyer. Why isn't Al Sharpton stepping up to the plate and supporting the poor rookie officer that was assassinated and murdered in cold blood in Jersey city. Knowing him he probably also left an empty bottle of Hennesy and a candle for that scumbag that murdered the young officer. Hey Al Sharpton why not change YOUR RACIST WAYS and step in and help the community and stop these people from thinking it fine to kill an innocent person let alone a officer who is doing his job to PROTECT AND SERVE THE PUBLIC.

Sharpton is afraid to turn against these people they might get him, white or black if you act like a wild animal you get treated like a wild animal. THE HONESTLY FEEL THE COPS PICK ON THEM FOR NO REASON, the majority thta commit these crimes are black, so they should go after there own face for labeling them. there are plenty of white criminals out there and they get whats coming to them when there wrong and there have been whites that have killed cops also and other people and I feel the same way about them, I don't see Sharpton making excuses for them though.
