Video Appears to Show Essex County Democratic Chairman Assault Blind Senior Citizen

EssexCountyPolitics.com has obtained a video that appears to show Leroy Jones, the Essex County Democratic Party Chairman, punch an elderly East Orange resident in the face in a senior citizen building on June 2 of this year.



Jones can be seen entering the lobby of 777 Springdale Avenue where he encounters Bill Graves, 75, a retired Army Veteran. The men appear to exchange words before Jones purportedly strikes Graves twice about his face with his fist. Graves, who suffers from severe glaucoma and who is completely blind in one eye and legally blind in the other, was taken to the local Veteran Administration Hospital where he was treated for injuries to his face and eye.

Leroy Jones was not arrested at the scene but was later charged with disorderly conduct.

The case has been moved from Essex County to Hudson County
