Jersey City police officer killed en route to work while helping driver

Jersey City police officer killed en route to work while helping driver

The former chief of police for Jersey City admitted Friday that he took around $31,000 from the city's Housing Authority by claiming on timesheets he worked security shifts at housing sites when he actually did not, according to authorities.

Lt. Christopher Robateau, 49, a married father of three with 23 years on the force, was on his way to work when he pulled his vehicle over after seeing the driver in the northbound lane in Newark, according to officials. He'd stopped to help another driver when he was struck and killed.

Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop announced Robateau's death this morning on Twitter.

Police said he "sustained serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene".

State Police said everyone involved in the incident stayed at the scene and are working with authorities.

Kelly said a funeral will be held for the fallen officer and the department "will mourn the way that we mourn when we lose one of our heroes", ABC reported.

Robateau, who's been on the job for 23 years, leaves behind a wife and three children. He joined the force in 1994, and was promoted to lieutenant in October 2014.

"A tough day for Jersey City as we lost a great police officer today", Fulop said in a statement on Facebook.
