Michael Henderson andArthur Villaruz, former membersof the Princeton Township PoliceDepartment, are suing the depart-ment, claiming they were wrong-fully discharged.Henderson, a former lieu-tenant, and Villaruz, a formercorporal, retired in October 2010.The two have now filed a law-suit claiming they were forcedinto retirement without justcause.According to the lawsuit, themen were forced by the MercerCounty Prosecutor’s office to re-tire, or face criminal charges.The two men retired after ascandal involving former PoliceChief Mark Emann and the ille-gal sale of weapons in the policedepartment.Emann allegedly sold an M16to a gun dealer to obtain weaponsfor his personal use.Henderson and Villaruz wereinvestigated in connection withthe scandal, but criminal chargeswere never brought against them.Both faced administrativecharges. Henderson said he be-lieved the deal was done legally,and Villaruz, who coordinated thesale of the M16, said he did solegally.According to the lawsuit, bothmen were mistreated by the Mer-cer County Prosecutor’s Office.Henderson was asked to sub-mit to a body search, with whichhe complied. According to thelawsuit, “Lieutenant Hendersonwas asked if he had been drink-ing and whether he would submitto an Alcotest. Although Lieu-tenant Henderson does not drink,he agreed and was transported tothe Montgomery Township PoliceDepartment where he submittedto the Alcotest, which was nega-tive. He was then released fromthe Montgomery Township PoliceDepartment. As with the bodysearch, the MCPO’s actions weredesigned to humiliate andembarrass Lieutenant Hender-son.”Henderson and Villaruz claimthey have not received compensa-tion for pay owed to them prior toretirement, and that the depart-ment retains possession of sever-al personal items of theirs.Henderson is seeking $40,000 inback pay and Villaruz is seeking$30,000.According to the suit, the tworequest “an award of compensa-tory damages for pain and suffer-ing, an award of punitive dam-ages, an award of attorneys feesand costs of suit incurred byPlaintiffs, and any other furtherrelief deemed by the Court to beequitable and just.”Captain Nick Sutter of thePrinceton Police Department saidhe did not have enough informa-tion to comment on the issue.Kathy Monzo, assistant admin-istrator, said even though the law-suit was originally filed againstthe township police department,the lawsuit will be carried for-ward into the new, consolidatedmunicipality.Township attorney EdSchmierer said there are severalcases currently in litigation thatwere carried over in consolida-tion.“There are other things we’vehad to deal with in the two sepa-rate municipalities that are car-rying forward into the new one,”Schmierer said. “Under the con-solidation law, any claims that in-dividuals may have had againstthe old Township or Borough willsimply continue.”Schmierer said the Henderson-Villaruz case will be handled byPrinceton’s insurance carrier.“Obviously we’re disappointedthat it was brought,” he said.“And it will be vigorously defend-ed.”
