Cameron Keyes faces assault and weapons possession charges.

A Tinton Falls man is accused of pulling a folding knife on two Red Bank officers after a traffic stop escalated.

Police stopped Cameron Keyes, 19, on Leighton Avenue at 11:15 p.m. on Wednesday. When Patrolman Stanley Balmer and Patrolman David Hicks found an active warrant on Keyes out of Neptune, they attempted to take him into custody, according to a press release from the Red Bank Police Department.

In my days of living in Tinton Falls, and working with scouting and little league programs, I remember the Keyes family as being a group of very fine people. I am troubled to see something like this happen, but it shows that none of us possesses immunity from situations like these.
