SOUTH BRUNSWICK - A man from Kendall Park says he was hit by a car. South Brunswick police, however, say that according to surveillance video, the reverse took place.

Footage from the security camera outside the Route 1 Stop & Shop shows James Prete in the crosswalk, walking with a cane. Police say Prete hit the car using a metal stapler and then yelled for the driver to stop.

After reviewing the store's surveillance video, police issued a summons to Prete, charging him with criminal mischief and falsely incriminating a person.

Prete declined to comment on the video, saying he hasn't seen it. His attorney maintains his client was the victim of a car accident and says the charges against Prete are baseless.
