RED BANK, NJ: So, about 12 noon today I’m sitting in my car waiting to see Thomas Register, owner of Chopper Shopper, an interactive drone experience store located upstairs in Hobbymasters on White Street.

I look across to the White Street Parking lot and see a telephone leaning over.  And I mean really leaning over.  We’ve all seen these poles on an angle, but this was really something else.

I called the RBPD and officers showed up within ten minutes, cordoning off the area with traffic cones.

I went in for a closer look and saw that the bottom of the pole where it meets the cement was entirely rotted out.  It looks like the only thing holding up the pole were the connecting wires strung through the trees.

JCP&L showed up about 40 minutes later and yellow taped an area taking up about twenty parking spots.

An unidentified JCP&L said that a new pole should be installed by 7:00pm tonight.
