Junior Marte spit on officer Jose Lebron, court records say. When officers tried to cover Marte's face with a sheet, he spit saliva and blood on Lebron and another officer, records say.
A man accused of breaking into a car spit on Allentown police officers and then flooded a holding cell at police headquarters, according to court records.
Junior Olegario Marte, no address listed, was stopped Tuesday night after a man reported to police a man matching Marte’s description was in his car, police said.
When Marte, who smelled of alcohol, was told he was under arrest, he told the officer he was not because he did nothing wrong, records say.
Marte tussled with two officers, police said. Once he was handcuffed and placed in a police cruiser, Marte began to kick the rear passenger window, records say. Marte was taken out of the cruiser and put into a police van, where he began to punch, kick and spit, police allege.
Police learned a Dieruff High School letter jacket and radio face plate found with Marte were stolen, records say.
At police headquarters Marte spit on officer Jose Lebron, records say. When officers tried to cover his face with a sheet, Marte spit saliva and blood on Lebron and another officer, police say.
Marte then turned to Lebron and said, “I want the Spanish cop. I’m going to (expletive) him up. Wait till I get out,” records say. Police said Marte then put the sheet in the holding cell’s toilet and flushed it multiple times, flooding the cell.
Marte, 36, is charged with two counts each of assault by a prisoner and theft, and single counts of making terroristic threats, institutional vandalism, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and public drunkenness. Marte was arraigned by District Judge Jacob Hammond and sent to Lehigh County Prison in lieu of $40,000 bail.
