TRENTON – Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman announced that a Gloucester County man was sentenced to state prison today for dragging a New Jersey state trooper with his car during a violent incident following a traffic stop. He also rammed the vehicle of an off-duty State Police captain while trying to escape.

Daren J. Rebel, 22, of Westville was sentenced to four years in state prison, including three years of parole ineligibility, by Superior Court Judge Christine Allen-Jackson in Gloucester County. Rebel was found guilty at trial on Jan. 30 of charges of second-degree aggravated assault while eluding police, second-degree eluding, third-degree aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, and fourth-degree aggravated assault. Those charges involved the trooper he dragged with his car. He was acquitted of several charges related to his conduct against the State Police captain.

Supervising Deputy Attorney General Andrew Johns and Deputy Attorney General Brian Carney tried the case and handled the sentencing for the Division of Criminal Justice.
