just_in1A Little Silver police officer was charged with simple assault Friday following an alleged domestic violence incident in Sea Bright a day earlier, authorities tell redbankgreen.

Joseph Glynn, Jr., 26, was issued a summons in his hometown of Middletown for a disorderly persons violation after the purported victim reported the matter to police there, according to Charlie Webster, spokesman for the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s office.

According to the complaint filed by the victim, whose identity authorities withheld, the incident occurred as the two were in a vehicle in Sea Bright Thursday evening, Webster said.

It was not immediately clear how Glynn was notified of the charge, but he reported to the Middletown police station Friday and was served with the summons, Webster said.

Glynn was not arrested, and the charge is one that presumes no bail is required, Webster said. No court date was immediately available.

Wesbter said that in compliance with state Attorney General rules, Glynn has surrendered his weapon and is on desk duty in Little Silver pending resolution of the matter.

Last March, former Little Silver cop Steven Solari, 41, was sentenced to a five-year term in state prison for assaulting an arrest subject in the borough stationhouse in December, 2009. The state Department of Corrections website indicates he’s being held at the Central Reception and Assignment Facility in Trenton.
