The municipal court appearance for Samuel J. Medway, and other authorities, has again been pushed back, now until next Monday morning, Aug. 27.
Medway, who had been living at Anderson Hill Road, where a standoff on the evening of June 7 drew a county SWAT team and other law enforcement officials, had been scheduled to appear at 10:30 a.m. on Monday morning before Municipal Judge Robert Schaul. His appearance now has been rescheduled to the same time during next Monday's municipal court session, said a Bernardsville court employee.
Medway, was found guilty on July 17 of unrelated charges stemming from the accusation that he sold an Uzi and ammunition to an undercover officer in 2011, was initially set to appear in Bernardsville municipal court of Aug. 6.
Medway, 44, reportedly gave himself up and arrested following the June 7 incident, during which police initially believed he may have been holding another person hostage at his home on Anderson Hill Road in Bernardsville, authorities said. He later was found to be alone, according to authorities.
Authorities at the scene also expressed the concern that Medway may have been armed. At the time, in June, Medway was facing the separate indictable offense accusing him of having sold on charges later adjudicated in state Superior Court in Somerville in July.
As a result of his June arrest, Medway is facing charges of obstruction of justice and a disorderly person offense, Capt. Jack Bennett, of the proseuctor's office said on June 8. Bennett added there was no further investigation into the charges at that time.
Authorities had said in June that attempting to serve Medway with a Medway ended up at about 9:50 p.m. that night, before he was transported to the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office and was then lodged in the Somerset County Jail, according to authorities at the scene and the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office.
