On August 3rd, a Satmar hasid was arrested in Kiryas Joel:
Joel Wertheimer, 27, of Monroe, was charged with second-degree unlawful imprisonment, a misdemeanor, and second-degree harassment, a violation. He was issued an appearance ticket.
I'm told the background to this arrest is as follows:
Two followers of Rabbi Ahron Teitelbaum, the Satmar Rebbe of Kiryas Joel, accosted a follower of the Williamsburg Stamar Rebbe Rabbi Zalman Teitelbaum and took his cellphone because he took photos of the Kiryas Joel Satmar rebbe without permission.
Wertheimer is one of those two Kiryas Joel hasidm.
The other, Mosha Simone, 34, of Monroe, was charged with
second-degree unlawful imprisonment, a misdemeanor. He was issued an
appearance ticket on August 5.
