BELMAR, NJ — An Edison police officer has entered a not guilty plea on disorderly conduct and resisting arrest charges resulting from an incident on Sunday, June 11 at D’Jais Bar & Grill.

Dmitry Smolkin appeared in Belmar Municipal Court on June 14 to answer the complaint three days after his arrest at the Ocean Avenue establishment. Smolkin is charged with fighting, threatening, shouting at and shoving an individual at D’Jais at about 10:20 p.m. — behavior that then prompted him to shout obscenities at police officers who were asking him to be quiet, according to court documents.

When Belmar police attempted to arrest him, Smolkin is accused of pulling away and shoving the officers, causing “all parties to fall onto the ground into bushes,” the complaint shows.

Smolin also has been charged with violating Belmar municipal code for “interference with a lawful business enterprise,” according to the summons.

Smolin, who joined the Edison police force in December 2015, faces up to $3,500 on all charges, and possible jail time or community service, if found guilty. Neither Belmar nor Edison police would comment on the matter.
