Year Description Outcome

Monte Stewart will receive $595,000 to settle a federal civil rights lawsuit. Stewart, who was 16 at the time, was “savagely beaten” by Carteret Police Officer Joseph Reiman during a 2017 arrest.

Reiman, the brother of Carteret’s mayor, Mayor Dan Reiman, was acquitted of criminal charges in Superior Court. The federal civil rights lawsuit contended that many officers who witnessed the incident failed to intervene because they feared retribution from the Mayor. Officer Reiman has faced numerous complaints of excessive force in the past.
