Lakewood, NJ – Jackson Man Arrested On Multiple Charges After Allegedly Assaulting Jewish Lakewood Driver Involved In Collision


    Lakewood, NJ – A fender bender in Lakewood turned ugly on Wednesday as one of the drivers emerged from his car shouting anti-Semitic expletives and allegedly turning violent.

    The incident happened yesterday afternoon just before 4:30 PM at the intersection of E. Kennedy Boulevard and Clifton Avenue, and according to the Asbury Park Press, involved three cars.

    34 year old Elijah D. Chandler of Jackson, was one of those involved in the accident. Video posted to the Ocean County Police Blotter Facebook page showed Chandler in an angry tirade, claiming that an Orthodox Jewish man had caused the collision by running a red light and striking a car that was presumably involved in the accident.

    “You [expletive] can’t even drive,” said Chandler. “Go back to your country. Go back to your [expletive] country. You [expletive] ran the light. You trying to [expletive] beat the light like all of you [expletive]s.”

    Police have yet to release the details of the accident but Chandler was found to have assaulted the driver of one of the vehicles involved, according to Lieutenant Gregory Staffordsmith of the Lakewood Police Department.

    The Shore News Network reported that witnesses said that Chandler opened the door of the car that he claims hit his vehicle and forcibly removed the driver from his car.

    “Further investigation revealed that Chandler was harassing and trying to intimidate those involved as well as bystanders by yelling bias statements and threatening to physically harm them,” said Staffordsmith.

    Staffordsmith told VIN News that police were still investigating the initial crash and could not disclose any details regarding the accident at this time. Asked whether Chandler had any prior arrests Staffordsmith replied, “we’re not allowed to say.”

    Staffordsmith also declined to say whether or not Chandler had a record any prior arrests.

    Chandler was charged with bias intimidation, terroristic threats, simple assault, criminal mischief and two counts of harassment.

    As of this morning he remained in the Ocean County jail in lieu of $41,000 bail.

    1. why are we such wimps, there are at least 8 heimsishe guys there, and they’re all so scared of him.
      let him throw the first punch, then he gets the beating of his life, and he’ll never do this again.
      instead when he flinches they run like cockroaches with the lights turned on.

    2. Let’s ignore the entire storyline focused on the assaulter and instead extract a lesson for ourselves. There is too much aggressive and rude driving done by frum Lakewood residents. There are many polite drivers but the number of unpleasant driving incidents one encounters in one day of Lakewood driving is far less than that of any heavily frum populated area in the world save for Bnei Brak. Yes, we know some of the reasons for it, but in the end those are justifications that don’t ultimately support the behavior.

    3. Blacks in the USA are no different, albeit worse, than their white gentile counterparts, when it comes to anti-semitism. Two weeks ago, while walking home from Shul on Shabbos, (on the sidewalk), in Columbus, Ohio, a car with two Black motorists passed me. When it was about 70 feet away, it blasted its horn, and the driver made an obscene gesture. There is no doubt in my mind that was intended for me, since there were no other cars in close proximity to that anti-semitic driver, when he engaged in that behavior. Unfortunately, the latter incident is not the first time that I’ve seen similar behavior from Black motorists in Columbus, Ohio, on Shabbos in the Eastmoor-Bexley area, near several Shuls. These are the same individuals, whom Yidden helped during the civil rights struggle of he 1960’s. Now that they have rights, they don’t need us anymore, and feel that they are entitled to the same hatred of Jews, as whites have. It was less than two years ago, that a Black robber gunned down a Chassidic Rabbi in Miami Beach, and bragged about it. He was eventually arrested. However, he has shown absolutely no remorse!
