New Jersey State Police union boss David Jones has been suspended for five days for giving out the personal information of New Jersey 101.5 radio talk show host Craig Carton.
Jones released Carton' personal information at a ranting news conference on the steps of the statehouse. After Carton criticized plans by some state troopers to tie up traffic and give tickets for going just one mile over the speed limit in response to criticism of the State Police for an accident that nearly killed Gov. Jon Corzine.
Corzine was not wearing his seat belt as required by state law. And his state trooper driver was speeding on the Garden State Parkway when the accident occurred.
Jones also pledged during the news conference that troopers would target Carton, co-host Ray Rossi, and other employees of the radio station. His comments prompted station officials to move Carton and Rossi and their families to safe houses and pull them off the air for a day for their own safety.
