FLEMINGTON, NJ – A motor vehicle stop that began when a driver failed to signal while leaving the Route 202-31 traffic circle resulted in the passenger getting into a fight with police and the arrest of two men, police report.

Patrol Officer Daniel Lookner stopped the vehicle being driven by Scott Smith, 36, of Hampton, around 4:17 p.m. Saturday. Police said that Lookner smelled raw marijuana as he approached the vehicle.

Lookner was assisted by Patrol Officer Philip Canale and removed Smith and passenger, Lee Zamorsky Jr., 39, of Phillipsburg, from the vehicle. As Lookner ran warrant checks, Smith told police the smell came from a tree branch on the rear seat, not from marijuana.

Lookner found raw marijuana “shake” on the floor of the vehicle, police said, and found warrants from Pennsylvania and New Jersey for Zamorsky’s arrest.  

When Lookner told Zamorsky to put his hands behind his back as part of the arrest for the warrants, he began to fight with the officers, police said. Both officers took Zamorsky to the ground to maintain control of him, but the struggle continued and Zamorsky was shortly after taken into custody, according to police.

After Zamorsky was taken into custody, Lookner continued his search of the vehicle and found heroin and drug paraphernalia. Smith was then taken into custody without incident.

Smith was charged with possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia, and was lodged at the Hunterdon County Justice Center pending a court date.

Zamorsky was charged with being a fugitive from justice in Pennsylvania, resisting arrest, possession of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also lodged at the Hunterdon County Justice center pending his court date.

Zamorsky’s in-state warrants were for failure to pay child support.
