(The Washington Times) The owners of a New Jersey gym that has repeatedly defied Gov. Phil Murphy’s executive order to remain closed during the COVID-19 pandemic were arrested Monday on contempt charges.
Ian Smith, 33, of Delanco Township, and Frank Trumbetti, 51, of Williamstown, were also charged with obstruction and violating the Disaster Control Act. They operate the Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, a suburb of Philadelphia.
The two men were processed at police headquarters and released later Monday morning. They and their attorney could not immediately be reached for comment.
