Woman's gesture leads to her arrest
CARNEYS POINT TWP. - A Wenonah spectator was arrested at Penns Grove High School here after she ran onto center court and gave the middle finger to the hometown crowd during a basketball game, police said.
Jaclyn Brown, 18, of Princeton Boulevard, was arrested Jan. 3 at 2:59 p.m. and charged with violating a township ordinance for creating a public disturbance, according to authorities. Police said the crowd went wild when she gave them the finger.
"Obviously she was not a big fan of Penns Grove," said Sgt. Brian Nixon. (Now THERE'S an understatement!)
The Penns Grove High School boys basketball team had been playing against the Gloucester Catholic Rams when the incident occurred, Nixon said.
Brown was charged and released pending a court appearance. The Red Devils went on to win the game, 39-37.
