After receiving a tip that Jersey City Police Superior Officers Association officials were at a bar in North Arlington, NJ on the afternoon of June 15, 2016, a citizen video recorded JCPSOA President Robert Kearns operating his vehicle well in excess of the posted maximum and running several red lights en route to the West District police station.

The first time was through the light at Kennedy Blvd. and Fairmount Ave. – the same intersection where Stephen Clifford was fatally struck by JCPD Officer Michael Spolizino’s vehicle. As reported by the Jersey Journal, authorities said Spolizino was driving 60 miles per hour – 35 MPH over the speed limit – when his vehicle struck Clifford. A jury eventually found Spolizino not guilty of death by auto and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

The second incident occurred at the intersection of Harrison and Kennedy Blvd – when Kearns’ vehicle accelerated past citizen videographer’s vehicle, then braked hard while blowing through the light.

Eventually Kearns turned on Communipaw Ave. and headed towards the JCPD’s West District.

A spokesperson for the JCPSOA, as well as city spokesperson Jennifer Morrill, declined to comment on an extended video showing the full trip through Jersey City to the West District Precinct. The extended video was also sent to the entire Jersey City Council.

Deputy Chief Joseph Connors, who oversees the JCPD’s Internal Affairs Unit (IAU), declined to confirm or deny if an investigation has been opened.

Corso previously received a punishment totaling a loss of 15 compensatory and vacation days regarding an incident in Robbinsville, NJ where reports generated by police officers state he was “Under the Influence” and “Resisted Police Officer Control” – including being disarmed of his loaded firearm.

As first reported by Real Jersey City, and recently reported by the Jersey Journal, Corso admitted he had been at a bar five hours before fatally shooting 15-year-old Lincoln High School student Michael Anglin, but claimed he did not drink any alcohol and only had a soda.
