ONLY ON CVP: A Little Ferry man who’s has previous run-ins with police tumbled down several stairs with officers after taking a swing at one of them, authorities said.

Rocky Minotti, 28, was being held on $60,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with three counts of aggravated assault on police, resisting arrest and criminal mischief.

Officers called to his grandmother’s Grand Street house found that Minotti had broken a window trying to get in — to retrieve a phone charger, he told them, Detective Ronald Klein told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Officer Adam Warne was walking him down the stairs when Minotto took a swing at Sgt. Christopher Boel, hitting him in the side of the head, Klein said.

Both officers were OK after the incident, he said, adding that Klein wasn’t injured, either.

Minotti six months ago was arrested by Carlstadt police who said they caught him with generic Xanax without a prescription after he caused a disturbance on an NJ Transit bus.
