CLIFFSIDE PARK — A police captain was suspended with pay on Friday after a borough man accused him of harassment and using his position as a detective to have a relationship with the man's wife. Detective Capt. Michael Russo was charged Thursday in Central Municipal Court, Hackensack, after a judge found there was probable cause to believe accuser Paul Carchietta's claims. Russo was released on his own recognizance... Carchietta told Presiding Judge Roy McGeady that Russo had exchanged more than 4,400 text messages and phone calls with his wife, beginning in late December and ending when the restraining order was lifted in February. Carchietta also said that his wife told him she had sex with Russo... Paul Carchietta also said that Russo had called him on several occasions and threatened him, saying: "Don't be driving through this town or I'll lock you up"... The judge did not find probable cause to substantiate two other charges against Russo: witness tampering and making terroristic threats. Wunsch later responded that police officers, such as Russo, are "the first line of defense" in cases of domestic violence. He also said that a state Superior Court judge found that Paul Carchietta had committed acts of violence against his wife, according to a January restraining order obtained by Eliota Carchietta...

  1. All together I've blocked over 20 comments. I don't know what Russo did or didn't do but someone who hates Russo seems to just sit around and figure out how to ruin his life, including deceptively - and in ways to embarass his family.

    HMMMM.... I wonder who that would be.

  3. Oh, I see this nut posts elsewhere in the internet so I don't need to alert anyone to this nut. I'm not defending Russo - it's just that this angry person needs to be contained.

  6. I am reaching out to show my love for THE ENTIRE CLIFFSIDE PARK POLICE DEPT. To say the are the greatest force out there I lived in cliffside park all my life then moved away & that is when you find out who is THE BEST IN BLUE !!! Where we live now there is no comparison to CLIFFSIDE PARK POLICE DEPT. They don't do even a 1/4 of what CLIFFSIDE PARK does. No matter where you go you will never find such LOVE & DEVOTION as CPPD does for its citizens,my children grew up knowing what REAL MEN IN BLUE are made of and I thank god for being a part of that experience. I will forever keep my loyality to MY HOMETOWN HEROS whom I will always love & adore !!! The thing that most upsets me is when I see one of these men being disrespected along with their families with NONSENSE that is UNTRUE then after hurting so many others it shows it was all exactly that NONSENSE,that's what hurts most of all because these MEN risk their lives everyday to keep all of us safe and afew losers looking for sometime in the spotlight cause pain to many but like I've always lived by is: "WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND"(PAYBACK SUCKS-LOL!!!) OUR MEN ARE ALWAYS PROTECTED NO MATTER WHAT BECAUSE THEY HAVE ANGELS WATCHING OVER THEM ALWAYS & THEY HAVE SO MUCH LOVE & SUPPORT THEY WILL ALWAYS BE FINE AND OVERCOME ANY NEGATIVE!!! MAY GOD BLESS CLIFFSIDE PARKS FINEST NOW & ALWAYS. THANK YOU GENTLEMEN OXOXOX
