BREAKING New Jersey Gym Owners who Defied Gov. Murphy’s Coronavirus Shutdown Orders Arrested for Contempt

More overreach from America’s liberal mayors and governors who refuse to protect their cities, but will arrest hard working business owners while rioters and protesters roam free.

A South New Jersey gym was shuttered Monday and its two owners arrested, escalating a battle over the two men’s refusal to comply with Gov. Phil Murphy’s coronavirus restrictions.

A judge on Friday ordered Atilis gym owners Ian Smith and Frank Trumbetti to vacate and cease operations in Bellmawr, N.J.

They were charged Monday with disobeying that order, Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill Mayer said.

She said Smith, 33, of Delanco Township, and Trumbetti, 51, of Williamstown, were charged with one count of fourth-degree contempt, one count of obstruction, and one count of violation of a disaster control act.

The contempt charge is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 18 months in jail. The other two charges were disorderly persons summonses.

“From July 24 through July 27, a number of individuals were observed entered and using the gym, a direct violation of the court order,” Mayer said. “Police said both owners refused to leave the gym when asked, leading to the charges.”

Smith and Trumbetti were brought to the Bellmawr Police Department, charged and released.

Gov. Murphy is Guilty of Mass Murder. He needs to be Publicly Hanged for his crimes.
