Brigantine Homeowners Group Wants Investigation Into Platt


Due to his well-documented violent background, Brigantine’s Troy Platt should be removed from position of President of the Brigantine Hockey League (BHL). That’s the opinion of a group called: ‘Concerned Brigantine Homeowners.’ Brigantine City Councilman, Dennis Haney (also member of BHL) will be asked to assist in doing a proper background check on Troy Platt.

Brigantine’s Troy Platt, is the brother of Brigantine Fire Chief, Tighe Platt, who lives in Absecon NJ.

BrigantineNOW reached out to Fire Chief Platt. So far, no reply.

Nobody did a background check on this guy?

The Concerned Brigantine Homeowners group told BrigantineNOW:

‘Brigantine Director of Recreation must get involved immediately. Protecting this guy will not be tolerated.’

‘Keep this guy AWAY from kids.  Marine Mammal Stranding Center better wake up too.’



In recent past, Troy Platt of Brigantine has been charged with:

AGGRAVATED STALKING (3rd degree felony) and multiple counts of DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. FELONY CRIMES AGAINST A PERSON.

On Sept 13, 2018, Troy Platt engaged in violent behavior again: Physically assaulting a member of the BrigantineNOW news org in a local restaurant. Platt also engaged in foul language and perverted discussion while in company of teens & pre-teens inside restaurant.

During Platt’s verbal & physical assault against member of BrigantineNOW, Platt verbalized his anger and disgust at BrigantineNOW’s coverage of local news. Platt not happy with BrigantineNOW’s sharing of City Council video, meeting minutes and other City Hall editorial.

Was a proper background check performed on Platt?

Organizations like the Brigantine Hockey League (under guidance of City of Brigantine REC Dept) and the MMSC, Marine Mammal Stranding Center would provide answers to that question.

More details as they become available.

Mayor Phil Guenther and Councilman Andy Simpson have yet to comment or take action on this issue.
