Weehawkin man injures three officers being taken into custody while threatening “I’m going to f__king kill all of you.”
Jorge Simonetti, 39, of Weehawkin, was charged with terroristic threats, resisting arrest, obstructing a government function and aggravated assault on the officers.
During the incident, Simonetti yelled “You guys are dead” while officers tried to restrain him. The confrontation led to two officers injuring their knee and another officer with a hand injury.
Depsite the prosecutors office filing for preventative detention, Simonetti was released and FREE TO GO under NJ Bail Reform after the Arnold Foundation’s “Pretrial Risk Assessment” tool determined he was not a danger to the community or a flight risk and therefore should not be subject to any accountable release – just a “promise” to appear.

A 39-year-old Weehawken man threatened to kill police officers and injured three officers while being taken into custody last week, police said.
Jorge Simonetti, of the 100 block of Parkview Terrace, is charged with making terroristic threats, resisting arrest, obstructing a government function and aggravated assault on the officers, the criminal complaint says.
“You guys are dead,” Simonetti allegedly yelled at the Weehawken officers. “I’m going to f—ing kill all of you,” the complaint says.
The officers said that on Dec. 4, Simonetti resisted being handcuffed and during the scuffle he dug his nails into the hand of one of the officers, the complaint says.
Another officer suffered a knee injury when his leg was caught between Simonetti and an air conditioner. Finally, the third officer suffered a knee injury when Simonetti kicked backwards while being handcuffed, the complaint alleges.
Simonetti made his first appearance on the charges on Tuesday in Criminal Justice Reform Court in Jersey City via video link from Hudson County jail in Kearny.
