Longshoreman Suspended by Commission Action after Arrest for Unlawful Possession of a Loaded Handgun

January 22, 2013

           Longshoreman James J. Sweigart has been suspended by the Waterfront Commission after his arrest for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm (a crime of the second degree). Sweigart was arrested at a diner in Newark, New Jersey after he was observed carrying a handgun in the waistband of his pants. Sweigart had no license for the Walther PPK 9 mm semi-automatic handgun which was found to be loaded. The criminal case is being prosecuted by the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office.

           Today, the Commission temporarily suspended Sweigart’s registration as a longshoreman pending the outcome of an administrative hearing.
