New Jersey Man, 32, Busted For Assaulting Woman During Diner Melee Caught On Tape

A New Jersey man who clobbered a female patron with a large table during a recent diner brawl caught on tape is facing an assault charge, according to police.

The 3:30 AM melee last Friday at the Two Peters Diner in Ewing, a township outside Trenton, was filmed by a patron who provides intermittent comment during the above 3:19 clip (which includes profanity and heaping helpings of combatant skin).

The most devastating blow during the fight was delivered by Amon Baldwin, a 32-year-old Ewing resident. Baldwin, wearing denim shorts and a black and white shirt, can be seen lifting a table and dropping it on a woman at around the 1:13 mark.

Baldwin was arrested for simple assault, according to Lieutenant Rocco Maruca, spokesperson for the Ewing Township Police Department. When cops arrived at the diner in response to a 911 call, an officer saw the 6’ 1” Baldwin punch a female victim, said Maruca.

Now that video of the fight has surfaced, other victims can seek to sign complaints at the local municipal courthouse, said Maruca, who added that he had heard two such complaints may be filed shortly.

As seen at right, Baldwin is a recent graduate of the Empire Beauty School at Bordentown, where he studied cosmetology and hairstyling.
