HAWTHORNE, NJ - On Saturday night, police responded to a call that a patron at R.D. Bender's Bar had been stabbed in the finger with a dart, according to the Hawthorne Police Department.  When the police arrived at 9:43 p.m., the suspect had fled but his friend, Patrick Brennan, a 52 year old man from Cedar Knolls, NJ, had remained.  The police described the suspect as appearing thoroughly intoxicated.

As the police officers attempted to determine what had happened, the inebriated Brennan was being "uncooperative with officers" according to the Hawthorne Police.  Brennan was told to go outside the bar, but he refused to leave and began yelling.  Once removed from the building, Brennan continued his profanity-laden shouting and was told he would be arrested for disorderly conduct.  The Police Department said Brennan struggled and resisted arrest, eventually losing that particular contest.  Brennan was taken to the police headquarters and duly charged with disorderly conduct.

Brennan was released from police custody, pending a court date.  The police are continuing to look into the dart incident.
