JERSEY CITY, N.J. A cop was treated for a hand injury after tussling with a teen-ager during a drug arrest, police said.

Maurice Washington, 19, of Union Street in Jersey City, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and drug charges, cops said.
Responding to reports of a dealer in the area, police saw what appeared to be a drug transaction between Washington and a person on a bike on Martin Luther King Drive near Oak Street on Thursday around 10:25 a.m., reports said.

When challenged by the cops, Washington threw a red-capped vial containing suspected cocaine to the ground, "stiffed armed" a cop and ran, reports said.
