    Man Admits Acid Attack After Coldplay Concert

    A Paulsboro man pleaded guilty Wednesday to aggravated assault, admitting he threw a bottle into the face of another man during a confrontation in the parking lot of the Tweeter Center in Camden after a concert on Aug. 7, 2005.


    In his guilty plea, James McNulty, 46, made no reference to the acid that was in the bottle and caused burns on the face, back, shoulders and chest of the 19-year-old victim. Police at the time said McNulty then used a long lighter to set fire to the victim.


    Assistant Camden County Prosecutor Joseph MacNamara said McNulty and the victim knew each other before the incident and had "a long-standing feud." Both had attended a Coldplay concert.

    McNulty, who reported addresses on both Spring Garden Avenue and North Commerce Avenue in Paulsboro, was arrested 10 days later in an Ocean City motel on charges of attempted murder, aggravated arson and unlawful possession of a weapon.


    He will be sentenced June 22 by Superior Court Presiding Criminal Judge Thomas A. Brown Jr.
