BERGENFIELD, N.J. – An Aug. 24 arraignment was set for a 57-year-old motorist who authorities said had cocaine in his car when police stopped it in Bergenfield and at his Englewood home when detectives searched it later.

Phillip Rivers was released on a summons charging him with having drugs for sale, Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said.

Rivers had a small amount on him when he was stopped on Aug. 3 and more packaged for sale at his home, the prosecutor said.

Grewal credited Bergenfield and Englewood police with assisting his Narcotic Task Force in making the case.
