The Jersey Journal

BAYONNE, N.J. An off-duty Bayonne police officer spotted a man Monday wanted for a previous scuffle with cops, and stuck around until he was in handcuffs, police said.

Police said the off-duty cop was at Advance Auto Parts on East 30th Street in Bayonne when he recognized Victor Gonzalez, 27, of Broadway, who was wanted on a $15,000 warrant for a resisting arrest charge from August. The cop identified himself to Gonzalez and ordered him to stay put until uniformed backup arrived to arrest him, police said.
