Drunken driving arrests happen daily in New Jersey. As Monmouth, Atlantic andMiddlesex County DWI lawyers, I and my staff have the skills and experience to represent those individuals accused of driving under the influence of alcohol, prescription medication and even illegal drugs such as marijuana. The following list of intoxicate driving arrests and other DUI offenses are a sampling of the situations in which many New Jersey motorists find themselves from time to time.
A 22-year-old out-of-state driver was reportedly stopped on Telegraph Hill Road for driving while intoxicated. A police patrol apparently noticed the man’s vehicle being driven in a possibly erratic manner, after which the driver was pulled over. He was arrested for DWI and taken to police headquarters for processing. The man was later released pending a court appearance.
On that same day, a 24-year-old motorist was pulled over along a stretch of Rte. 35 by a police officer and was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence. The man was later taken to headquarters, processed and released pending a future court appearance.
Three young people, two men and a woman under the age of 21, were arrested by police for underage possession of alcohol. The trio from Brick, Point Pleasant and Point Pleasant Beach were all taken to police headquarters for processing before being released. Each of the three will have to return for a court appearance.
Police made a DWI arrest on Main St. in Belmar when they apparently spotted car being driven erratically. The 42-year-old driver, who reportedly resisted arrest, was charged with driving while intoxicated, aggravated assault and obstructing justice.
