Three New York residents arrested while intoxicated at Six Flags Great Adventure
Three New York City residents from Brooklyn have been arrested for allegedly becoming unruly while under the influence of alcohol Monday morning at Six-Flags Great Adventure in Jackson Township.
Police responded to the main gate area around 11:15 am on Monday in response to an incident where two men and a woman were showing signs of being intoxicated.
As an officer began to address the individuals, one of the males told him he was heading to his car to drive home and didn't listen to any of the officers commands to stop.
After being initially detained near the main gate they tried to make a break for it from police with the female suspect attempting to throw a bag of cocaine in the trash, it missed and hit the ground.
One of the males tried to fight off police by "flailing his arms" and pushing officers before being detained.
All three have been arrested and charged.

Yevgeniya Kozlova, 27, Brooklyn, NY is charged with disorderly conduct and possession of a controlled dangerous substance.

He was treated and released from an area hospital for complaints of pain from the incident and then transported to the Ocean County Jail.
Two of the officers received medical attention for injuries suffered in the incident.
The public is reminded that any persons arrested or charged with any offenses or crimes are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.
