It goes from bad to worse for man facing charges in alleged assault on police
What started out as a domestic violence charge, ended in numerous charges that could land Michael Colombo in prison for quite some time. Colombo, of Hoboken was just going to be charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count of burglary, and one count of simple assault in an alleged attack on a woman in Teaneck. However, when police attempted to arrest him, they allege that he lunged at them, punching and kicking two officers, as well as striking one in the head with a metal skillet, then biting him in the arm followed by an attempt to take his gun.
He was eventually subdued charged with one count of resisting arrest, one count of possessing a weapon for an unlawful purpose, one count of aggravated assault upon a police officer, one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon upon a police officer and one count of attempting to disarm a police officer. That last charge is a second degree offense. Needless to say, he is facing a ton of time here. Oddly enough, his bail is only $15,000 which is really low given the number of charges and the amount of prison time he is potentially facing.
