Just after midnight on Mar. 18, someone made a call to 911 about a supposed fight at the Mohawk House Restaurant in Sparta, New Jersey. The parties involved had apparently been separated before on-duty police officers arrived on the scene. One of the individuals involved was a corporal of the township police department and the other was a 41-year-old Sparta resident, who was charged with a crime after an initial investigation.
