DWI charges for New Jersey tunnel driver

A man has recently been charged with several crimes after an incident in the Holland Tunnel. The New Jersey man allegedly drove drunk through the tunnel and almost struck several cars. He was arrested on DWI charges. It is likely the man is contemplating his options for defending himself against these charges. Since he is innocent until proved guilty, it will be on the state to prove the case against him. 

The incident occurred in the early morning hours of Sunday, Oct. 1. At about 4:30 a.m., the 25-year-old man supposedly was driving erratically. It was reported that the individual crossed the center line and struck the side of the tunnel, then drifted to the opposite side of the tunnel, almost striking several vehicles. No injuries were reported in this incident. 

The man was arrested in Jersey City once his car became stuck in traffic. Authorities report that he failed a Breathalyzer test, alleging that his blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit. In addition to the drunk driving charges, he was also charged with reckless endangerment and bail jumping. Few other details are currently available about the pending case. 

In New Jersey, DWI charges come with serious penalties. A driver facing DWI charges may be stuck paying fines, or could possibly even lose his or her license. Any person who is accused of a crime has the right to an attorney. The attorney a person selects can help build a strong criminal defense against the charges and may be able to have them reduced or revoked.
