UNION - A Union Township man was arrested after police say he punched a woman in the face in front of officers.

Authorities say 25-year-old Marckenle Pierre threatened his arresting officers who were eventually able to get the struggling man into the backseat of a patrol car.

He then allegedly kicked out the rear window of the patrol car before he was sprayed with Mace by police.

Reports say that Pierre faces two counts of aggravated assault on an officer, resisting arrest and criminal mischief as well as contempt warrants out of the Hudson County Sheriff's Department, Union Township, Irvington and Secaucus.
