    The victim received medical treatment and was released from the hospital, police said. Ploof also obtained medical treatment, which police characterized as an attempt to stall going to jail.

    Following the incident, the victim left a River Street residence late Friday night and met with police at the front of the House of Tang restaurant, police said.
