ONLY ON CLIFFVIEW PILOT: Fort Lee arrested the ex-husband of an elementary school staffer after he violated a restraining order by going to her job, then punched the principal, CLIFFVIEW PILOT has learned.
Joseph L. Dimino, 56, is free on $75,000 bail after being arrested this morning on a host of charges.
Staff, students and faculty were enjoying a special field day at the No. 3 School, when Dimino showed up sometime after 9 this morning, in violation of a judge’s order that he stay away from his 54-year-old ex-wife, records show.
Soon after, the 5-foot-10-inch, 160-pound Dimino hit Principal Robert Kravitz, police said. The principal wasn’t seriously injured, they said.
Fort Lee police filed a half-dozen charges against Dimino:
• assault on a school employee;
• assault at a youth sporting event;
• child endangerment;
• two counts of contempt of a judicial order.
Dimino, who now lives in New York City, remains free pending a Fort Lee Municipal Court hearing.
