Bayonne man slashes off-duty police officer’s neck outside Jersey City bar: police

A Bayonne man has been charged with attempted murder after authorities say he slashed an off-duty Jersey City police officer’s neck during a dispute outside a bar early Saturday morning.

Michael Devaney, 34, was also charged with two counts of aggravated assault, possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, according to the criminal complaint.

“Michael Devaney is a hard-working family man,” said Brian Neary, Devaney’s attorney. “We are going to make sure we find out all the circumstances regarding the incident.”

The off-duty police officer told Jersey City police that he and another another off-duty officer were leaving South House on Newark Avenue sometime before 2:50 a.m. when they got into an argument with three men, the criminal complaint said.

The argument escalated and Devaney “pulled out a knife and slashed” one of the off-duty Jersey City officers in the neck, causing a 2-inch laceration, the complaint said.

According to the complaint, the off-duty officers did not identify themselves as police officers at any time during the incident.

Devaney was arrested after he was identified by the two officers. Police did not recover a weapon, the complaint said. It is believed there is at least one video that shows at least part of the confrontation.

Jersey City spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione did not respond to a request for more information.

The 34-year-old appeared at a detention hearing before Hudson County Superior Court Paul DePascale Wednesday and he was released through the course of his prosecution.
