Florida Man Sentenced for Assaulting Military Police in South Jersey

A Florida man who attacked military police officers at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst was sentenced to 33 months in jail.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for New Jersey, Hal Wander, 26, of Port Charlotte, was charged with speeding through a checkpoint at the Burlington County base in November 2020.

The federal prosecutor’s office said in a statement that two Air Force police officers chased after Wander and surrounded Wander’s automobile with their marked cars.

A Florida man hit a military police officer with his car and dragged him.

According to the statement, Wander allegedly accelerated to hit one police car and then backed up to smash another.

Wander is accused of driving away and dragging the officer for a distance of several feet after the officer got inside Wander’s stopped car to turn off the ignition.

According to the statement, Wander “continued to drive his vehicle dangerously until he hit a utility pole, came to a stop, and was arrested.”

Wander admitted guilt to using his car as a lethal and dangerous weapon to harm two federal officers in February 2022.

In accordance with the sentence given by U.S. District Judge Joseph Rodriguez in Camden federal court, he also has to complete three years of supervised release.
