INDICTMENT IN SPRING STREET SPREE

Call in the authorities
A Red Bank man has been indicted for a stopping a car, jumping on its hood, forcing its occupants out and crashing the vehicle into both a moving car and a house last year, today’s Asbury Park Press reports.

The Monmouth County Grand Jury indictment handed up yesterday charges Spring Street resident Joseph Henninger, 28, with carjacking, theft, attempted theft, aggravated assault, assault by auto and resisting arrest, the Press reports.

The bizarre series of events unfolded last March 14 on Spring Street.

Here’s a portion of redbankgreen‘s report on the incident that day:

According to a department press release, a Little Silver woman and her 16-year-old daughter were driving north on Spring Street at about 7:25a when they came upon Henninger standing in the middle of the roadway and blocking their path. When their SUV stopped, Henninger climbed on top of the hood of this vehicle and began to yell at its occupants.

The woman got out of the vehicle, at which point Henninger jumped off of the hood and climbed into the driver’s seat of the vehicle with the girl still inside the vehicle. Henninger put the car in drive, at which point the daughter jumped from the car.

Henninger then drove the vehicle north a short distance before crashing head-on into a southbound vehicle driven by an Oceanport woman and carrying two passengers from Red Bank. Henninger then drove into the concrete porch of a residence, exited the SUV and tried to enter a delivery truck that was parked in the driveway to a nearby residence, but was unsuccessful, and began to walk from the scene, police say.

Patrolmen Patrick Kennedy and Robert Gannon were first on the scene, and Kennedy subdued Henninger after a brief struggle.

The occupants of the vehicle that Henninger ran into were transported to Riverview Medical Cente by the Red Bank and Little Silver First Aid Squads, as was Henninger. He and the
passengers of the second vehicle were treated and released. The driver of the vehicle remains hospitalized, police say.
