An Eatontown detective facing charges of sexual assault and official misconduct pleaded guilty Wednesday to tampering with physical evidence and criminal coercion in exchange for the other charges to be dropped at sentencing. According to the Asbury Park Press, Detective Philip Emanuele, of Brick, admitted in court to arresting a woman in December 2011 for theft at Monmouth Mall in Eatontown. The woman, identified in court as L.A.H, turned drugs over to Emanuele and he later flushed them down the toilet at the police station. He also worked out an agreement with the woman to become a confidential informant. While driving her back to the car, Emanuele asked L.A.H. to perform a sexual act since he helped her out, and she said no, he admitted in court.
