Brick man arrested after fight with neighbor
When police arrived on the 900 block of Lynnwood Avenue, Brick around 3:30 p.m. Friday, neighbors across the street from Louis Sollitto reported he threatened them, and they played a recording of an argument. While police were talking with the neighbors, Sollitto continued to yell and threaten them, including threatening to kill the neighbor and cause damage to the neighbor’s property. Police tried to approach Sollitto, who kept the officer at bay using a pair of pit bulls as a barrier.
When the police tried to arrest Sollitto, he took a swing at the officer before the two fought to the ground. The dogs came out of the house during the altercation, forcing the officer to use pepper spray to force the animals to retreat. Sollitto was charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, making terroristic threats, resisting arrest and weapons offenses. Additional charges of disorderly conduct and criminal mischief were lodged against Sollitto after he spit inside of the patrol car.
