A Red Bulls player has been charged with aggravated assault after he allegedly pushed a police officer who was investigating a noise complaint at a northern New Jersey apartment.

Fort Lee Police Det. Sgt. Kenneth Porrino tells The Record newspaper that Wilman Conde-Roa, a center back for the Major League Soccer team, and another man were "intoxicated and belligerent'' when officers arrived around 5:30 a.m. Saturday.      

As one of the officers tried to confirm the identity of a woman at the apartment, Porrino said Conde-Roa "became loud'' and began pushing the officer, who arrested him.

Conde-Roa was released Saturday morning on his own recognizance, and a phone number for him could not be located.      

Conde-Roa has been sidelined most of this season with a groin injury.
