SOUTH HACKENSACK, N.J. -- A judge agreed to a request by the wife of South Hackensack Deputy Mayor William Regan to dismiss domestic violence charges she'd filed against him, local authorities confirmed.
Maria Regan, who resumed living with her husband, originally filed a complaint alleging that he grabbed her and pulled her to the ground, injuring her, in January.
To avoid a potential conflict, the case was brought to Central Municipal Court in Hackensack, where Maria Regan asked a judge to dismiss the charges.
Her husband, who has worked protecting celebrities and company executives and for the past year has driven a limousine, joined the Township Committee in 2011 and was the borough mayor from January 2014 to January 2016. He became deputy mayor last year and was re-sworn to his third committee term earlier this year.
He has been a police commissioner, co-chairman of the Zoning Board, a member of the Board of Education and a town sports coach -- as well as serving the past 25 years as a volunteer firefighter.
