JERSEY CITY– Spike TV’s reality cop show “DEA” and the Jersey City Police Department have been charged with barging into an apartment without a warrant, according to Courthouse News Service. They’re accused of twice entering the apartment of two Jersey City men and broadcasting the episode without obtaining a signed release and without blurring one man’s face, as allegedly promised.
