Crash into New Jersey pizzeria results in DWI claim

A car accident can happen at any time of the day or night for a variety of different reasons. Unfortunately, law enforcement officials in New Jersey believe that a recent accident was the result of an individual who was driving while intoxicated, or DWI. Reports indicate that the incident involved a vehicle crashing into a pizzeria.

Police appear to believe that the woman was drinking at an "establishment" near where the incident happened. Officials claim that after leaving the establishment, the woman drove into the front of Flying Crust Pizza & Wings, causing significant damage to the storefront. An employee reportedly asked the woman if she was on medication or had fallen asleep at the wheel to which she is said to have replied, "I'm good."

New Jersey doctor faces drug charges over opioid prescription

Doctors and other health care providers across the country have difficult jobs. They must carefully consider both the wants and needs of their patients. Because they are often left to make decisions of need based on information provided by patients -- including information regarding their levels of pain -- it may be difficult to make this determination. Despite this, a doctor in New Jersey now faces drug charges after he was accused of writing unnecessary prescriptions for painkillers.

Law enforcement officials claim that the doctor began writing the false prescriptions in May 2014. They claim that he allowed patients to choose how much of a drug he would prescribe. He is also accused of failing to monitor patients for signs of addiction.

Man arrested following New Jersey robbery

When a person is facing criminal charges in New Jersey, he or she may feel overwhelmed by the criminal justice system. Often, the process can seem complicated even for those who have legal training and experience. Unfortunately, a man who now faces multiple charges, including robbery, may feel confused as he faces the decisions before him.

The most recent charges against the man -- brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence and Hobbs Act robbery -- reportedly happened on a day in February. Reports indicate that he attempted to pay a business with a fake check. When the owner of the business asked for cash, the 29-year-old man then reportedly drove to a bank with the owner, brandished a gun and threatened to kill the owner if he did not deposit the check and make a cash withdrawal.

New Jersey school bus driver charged with DWI

Bus drivers have difficult jobs. They are often tasked with managing the behavior of multiple students while also maintaining their safety while driving a large vehicle. Often, passengers may create distractions that make it difficult for a driver to stay focused on the road. Unfortunately, a bus driver in New Jersey is now facing accusations of driving while intoxicated, DWI, after the bus she was reportedly driving was involved in what appears to be a minor accident.

The incident reportedly happened at approximately 7:30 a.m. on a day in late April. According to reports, a 57-year-old woman was driving a bus filled with 28 students to a technical school. Unfortunately, she allegedly failed to stop her bus in time, causing it to strike the rear of an unoccupied bus.

New Jersey man charged in son's murder

Some degree of conflict between family members is not uncommon. However, this conflict rarely results in violence. Despite this, a man in New Jersey was recently charged with murder in connection to the death of his father.

The incident that led to the man's arrest reportedly happened on a day in April. According to police, the 38-year-old man became involved in an altercation with his 66-year-old father. Police claim that they discovered the deceased man covered in knife wounds. The man's mother was also reportedly knocked to the ground during the altercation but was uninjured.

Traffic violations can mean points on one's license

Having a spotless record can be important in any walk of life. With the cost of car insurance, it is wise for those in New Jersey to avoid tickets for driving infractions, which can cause their rates to rise. Additionally, many traffic violations result in points on one's record, which can lead to the suspension of his or her license.

Moving violations carry different point values. For example, failing to stop for a traffic light may result in two points, and reckless driving equals five points. Acquiring a total of 12 points means a driver's license is suspended, and this can be a great inconvenience. Only six points on one's license means the individual will pay an annual surcharge for three years. Insurance companies consider drivers with points to be high risk, so they often charge those drivers higher rates.

New Jersey undercover surveillance leads to drug charges

The criminal justice system often feels overwhelmingly complicated for those facing criminal charges. A lack of understanding of personal rights and the processes following an arrest can leave defendants unsure of their options and how to proceed. In fact, three people in New Jersey who were recently arrested on drug charges may be experiencing this.

The incident that led to their arrest is said to have happened in a ShopRite parking lot on a day in late March. Reports indicate that police officers were conducting undercover surveillance of a 20-year-old male and a 21-year-old female who they suspect of being involved in a drug ring. After allegedly observing the pair conduct a drug sale with a 35-year-old woman, investigators approached the vehicle.

DWI suspected in fatal New Jersey pedestrian accident

Because driving a motor vehicle is something that is essential to many people's everyday lives, it may also be something that many people take for granted. Drivers must constantly make multiple split-second decisions that account for a variety of different factors. Driving at night, for example, can make it even more difficult due to a lack of visibility. Unfortunately, police in New Jersey believe that a fatal accident was the result of a driver who was DWI, driving while intoxicated.

The accident happened during the early morning hours of a day in January. Police say that the victim, a 35-year-old woman, was crossing the street with a group of friends when she was allegedly struck by a vehicle that fled the scene. The woman suffered multiple injuries in the crash. Family members ultimately made the decision to remove life support, and she passed away.

New Jersey man pleads guilty in wife's murder

The relationship of a husband and wife is often difficult for an outsider to truly understand. A couple who may seem perfectly happy on the surface may actually be struggling and considering to end their relationship. In fact, law enforcement officials believe that there was likely much more going on between one New Jersey couple; the man has recently pleaded guilty to murder charges in his wife's death.

Police believe that the man murdered his 47-year-old wife in June 2017. Reports claim that after he killed her, he placed in body in a pool. He then left the home to pick up dinner for two, reportedly in an attempt to establish an alibi. He reportedly called 911 when he returned home, claiming that he just discovered his wife's body. Reports indicate that the man and his neighbors attempted to revive the woman; the body of a small dog was also found in the pool, but it is unclear how it got there.

New Jersey drug charges: Man accused of selling catnip cocktail

Legal drugs often have more than one use. Often, they can be used in ways other than originally intended with beneficial results. Unfortunately, police in New Jersey claim that the use of what is called "catnip cocktail" is dangerous to humans. They further state that they have recently arrested a 48-year-old man -- who now faces drug charges -- for selling it out of a nutrition store.

Catnip cocktail, according to reports, is a solution that is typically used to sedate cats. However, when humans consume it, it is said to have similar effects to Gamma-Hydroxybutyric Acid, also known as the date rape drug. Law enforcement officials claim that they first encountered its use in July 2018 after they were called to a strip mall to investigate a man allegedly acting bizarrely.
