Jersey City Mayor Arrested in Bar Incident

Published: June 18, 2006

Filed at 9:03 p.m. ET

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- Jersey City's mayor said he was arrested and roughed up by police over the weekend for intervening in an argument outside a beach bar.

Mayor Jerramiah Healy said he had just left Barry's Tavern in Bradley Beach -- a bar owned by his sister -- around 2 a.m. Saturday when he saw a couple arguing in a nearby parking lot. He said the man was jumping on the hood of his girlfriend's car.

After he calmly talked the man down, Barry said, police arrived and threw him on the ground and Maced him. When his wife tried to retrieve his glasses, police shoved her to the ground too, according to Healy.

''My lawyer has asked me not to speak, but I did absolutely nothing wrong,'' Healy told The Associated Press on Sunday.

But, but he's not black. how could this happen?

Jersey City is a strange place. And the shore is not the Hamptons.
