An early-morning brawl involving eight to 10 teens Saturday in a residential section of Little Silver sent one man to the hospital and led to another being charged with assault, Little Silver police said.
The altercation, which occurred outside a party at a Lippincott Road home at about 1:35 a.m. Saturday and required assistance from neighboring towns, also left others with minor injuries, Police Chief Dan Shaffery said.
According to Shaffery, police responded to the east end of Lippincott the road connects in a horseshoe to Little Silver Point Road for a noise complaint. When officers arrived, “they observed multiple subjects fighting and requested patrols from neighboring towns,” he said.
While medical personnel treated several people on the scene, 19-year-old David Incle Jr., of Aberdeen, was sent to Riverview Medical Center for treatment of a laceration from a broken bottle, Shaffery said.
Thomas Price Jr., 20, of Ocean, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and disorderly conduct. He was released pending a court date, Shaffery said.
The cause of the brawl is unknown, but Shaffery said it was not related to any post-prom party.
“It was just a regular party,” he said. “It was an isolated incident.”
