A star of the Bravo TV reality show The Real Housewives of New Jersey, was arrested last April by the civil complaint division of the Passaic County Sheriff's Department (PCSD) because of an unpaid fee to a law firm. Danielle Staub was arrested at her Wayne home on April 2 and placed into custody on an outstanding non-incarceration daytime Passaic County Superior Court civil action contempt warrant, by officers of the PCSD . Staub was transported to PCSD headquarters in Wayne, where she completed an information subpoena from the plaintiff's Short Hills-based law firm, Gourvitz and Gourvitz. Staub was released after two hours, once the plaintiffs were satisfied with the information that the defendant supplied.
Yesterday, a spokesman for Staub, Thom Ammirato, said the now-famous housewife had not ruled out a run for Congress against U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-Paterson) next year.
