ENGLEWOOD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A northern New Jersey man broke into a liquor store and got into a fight with police just hours after he was released from jail, authorities said Sunday.

Willie Carter Jr., 44, faced several new charges — including burglary, theft and aggravated assault on police – stemming two incidents that occurred Saturday, Englewood police told NJ.com.

Carter was freed from the Bergen County Jail late Friday afternoon after serving a two-month sentence for a parole violation. Authorities said he then broke into the liquor store early Saturday, stealing cash and cigarettes.

When police went to Carter’s home to arrest him Saturday afternoon, a scuffle ensued. Two officers were injured, including one who suffered a broken hand.

Carter remained jailed Sunday.
