A Princeton police officer was dispatched to the area of 73 Palmer Square Saturday afternoon after a caller reported that there was something sharp on the sidewalk.
The officer arrived on the scene and was investigating the reported hazard when he was shocked by an electrical current. He was transported to the Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center for evaluation and was released after being treated.
An investigation revealed there was a malfunctioning light pole that was the source of the
electrical current. PSE&G and Palmer Square Management responded to the scene and
shut the power off.
