A Marlboro Police Officer is accused of punching a Colts Neck woman in the face, breaking her orbital and then falsely arresting and imprisoning the woman, according to a federal lawsuit filed in Trenton last week.
Officers Donna Gonzalez and Joseph Meglio forced themselves into the Colts Neck home of Marlene Mazur on January 24, 2016 in response to a dispatch call reporting an argument between a man and a women, according the the suit filed by Freehold attorney Thomas Mallon on behalf of Mazur.

Gonzalez and Meglio entered the home and demanded to speak to the husband. Gonzalez pushed Mazur against a wall and gestured as if she was going to punch her while Meglio followed the son upstairs and entered a room where the son’s children were staying.

Monmouth County Democratic Chairman Vin Gopal is publicly calling for Marlboro Mayor Jon Hornik to run for governor in 2017.
In a Letter to the Editor published on APP.com, Gopal sings Hornik’s praises as a “socially conscious and fiscally ressponsible” Democrat who was elected in three time in a town that voted for Chris Christie for Governor and Steve Lonegan for U.S. Senate over Cory Booker in 2013. Gopal said that should Hornik run for governor, he would have Vin’s unwavering support.
