I would like to know what the charge was. Disorderly conduct? Harassment? Seems a stretch for both to me.

PASSAIC, N.J. (AP) -- A Municipal Court judge in Passaic has fined a man $150 plus fees for calling a Passaic public works employee the "N word."
Adelson Cruz apologized, telling Aregawi Kishen he lacks self-control.
Kishen says he filed the complaint to teach the 21-year-old Clifton resident a lesson.
Cruz told the judge the altercation happened because Kishen's public works truck was double parked in front of Cruz's car in September.
Kishen says he was fixing a "No Parking Anytime" sign.
Passaic's City Council last year adopted a resolution urging a ban on the "N word."
