BRICK – The two suspects accused of striking a police officer while riding an ATV have turned themselves in to police and are now charged.

Brick Township Police Sargent Jim Kelly said both juvenile males were with their parents on Thursday night when they came to the police station.

Police said at around 1 p.m. on Thursday, Officer Brian Ulman was investigating a minor complaint in the area of 19th Avenue and Walnut Drive. While responding to the scene, Officer Ulman saw two males on a quad and a two-wheeled dirtbike.

According to police, several streets in the neighborhood were coned off for construction work. The young men went into the work area and while the officer tried to stop them, they didn’t follow instructions. As the quad passed by Officer Ulman, he was struck by the rear fender of the quad in the knee and one of the wheels ran over his foot. He wasn’t injured.

Officer Ulman and other officers began searching for the suspects and police put out a call on social media.

Both juveniles are charged with Obstructing the Administration of Law, Reckless Driving, Operating Unregistered Vehicles and Failure to Wear Helmets While Operating an ATV.
