A Bradley Beach man was jailed on drugs charges after an altercation with police Friday, authorities said.
Robert D. Peterson, 57, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance when he was found with six unopened suboxone film packages without a prescription, according to the arrest warrant.
Peterson also was charged with a disorderly persons offense after he continued to scream at police who had just issued him a ticket for excessive noise, the warrant says.
Peterson was taken to Monmouth County jail, Freehold Township, in lieu of $5,000 bail. He was still listed as an inmate late Monday, according to jail records.
