NORTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – The North Plainfield Policemen's Benevolent Association (PBA) Local #85 will hold an Autumn Rumble fundraiser on Nov. 19 with proceeds benefiting the borough’s police union.

There will also be a midget match and North Plainfield’s very own Detective Eric ‘Icebox’ Fowler will also step into the ring.

“The union is extremely grateful that he has stepped up to participate in the event. He is well known within the North Plainfield School District as he has been a School Resource Officer for many years,” said David Canica, a member of the North Plainfield PBA and a patrolman with the borough police department for close to two decades. “We hope the kids will come out to see him.”
