Skate ramp builder allegedly ignores cop’s orders to halt work

The man added concrete around the officer’s feet and continued working on the ramp around the officer, Hackettstown police said.

A man working on a skate ramp on private property was arrested after failing to stop the work, Hackettstown police reported.

A little after 3 p.m. Saturday, an officer on routine patrol saw two men re-building a skate ramp on a lot at 301 Mountain Ave; the property is owned by Lion Gate at Musconetcong River LLC, records say.

The officer told the men the land was private property and they would need to leave, according to the police department.

One of the men, later identified as 40-year-old Edward Latus, continued working on the ramp by adding concrete, police said.

The officer reported he asked Latus, of Califon, New Jersey, to stop, but Latus added more concrete and smoothed it onto the ramp.

The officer stepped in front of the ramp, and Latus allegedly added concrete around the officer’s feet and kept working.

Latus was again told to stop or risk being arrested, police said. Latus allegedly refused to stop building the ramp, and he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

Latus was released pending a court appearance, police said.
