FAIRFIELD, NJ — Upon returning to Fairfield's Crowne Plaza Hotel after his own wedding, Eric Rebisz, 25 of Hopatcong, created a disturbance that ultimately caused the Fairfield Police Department to arrest him for criminal mischief on Aug. 21.

At approximately 12:45 a.m. on that date, the police department was contacted by hotel management, who reported a disturbance on the third floor of the hotel located at 690 Route 46 East in Fairfield.

When Officer Steven D’Argenio and other officers arrived at the scene, they were advised that a patron, later found to be Rebisz, had allegedly severely damaged a guest room and a lighting fixture in a hallway.

According to the report, the officers proceeded to room 333, where they found extensive damage to the room, including holes punched into the wall, a broken lamp that was allegedly thrown at a window and caused the window to break, and a broken room telephone. Management estimated the total value of the damage to be approximately $5000.

Subsequent to investigation, police allegedly discovered that Rebisz and his new wife were put in a regular guest room rather than the suite they were supposed to have, which police said upset Rebisz. Allegedly, Rebisz proceeded to the hotel’s bar and became more upset when he returned to the room, where he allegedly repeatedly knocked on the door of his room and got no answer.

According to police, Rebisz’s came from down the hallway to tell him that the hotel had moved the couple to the suite they were supposed to have, however Rebisz was still upset an allegedly damaged the room because of it.

Rebisz was placed under arrest without incident, charged with criminal mischief and eventually released on his own recognizance pending an initial appearance in the Superior Court in Essex County on Sept. 7. It should be noted that the charge against Rebisz is merely an allegation and that he is presumed innocent until he either pleads guilty or is found guilty in a court of law.
