University spokesman Stuart Goldstein tells The Record of Bergen County that university police Sgt. Pablo Vinas discharged his weapon during a struggle while trying to apprehend Sayegh.
Goldstein said officers spotted Sayegh breaking into a car on the North Haledon campus around 3:25 p.m. yesterday.
After a brief foot pursuit, Sayegh fled in a BMW, running at least five stop signs before being blocked by police cars.
Goldstein said Vinas approached Sayegh's car with his weapon drawn, and it went off as the two struggled.
