New Jersey man hit with DWI charges on New Year's Day

An incident in which a car struck a building on New Year's Day is being investigated by local authorities. New Jersey police responded to a call stating that a vehicle struck a building, and that the driver was attempting to leave the scene. One man, a former Congressional candidate, has been arrested and charged with DWI following the incident. 

It was approximately 2 p.m. when police responded to the 911 call reporting that a person had struck a local business with a truck. Police arrived on the scene and apprehended a man who they say refused to submit to an alcohol test. The officers later charged him with driving under the influence, failure to submit to a breath test, possession of an open container of alcohol while driving and careless driving. 

The structure sustained considerable damage and was deemed unfit for use by a local construction official. Observing problems with studs, siding and interior damage, the official declared the building in violation of safety codes. The driver of the car was charged and later released by the authorities. 

The New Jersey man will be facing potentially severe penalties associated with the DWI and other charges. It is likely that he is preparing a defense against the charges. The burden of proof for the charges rests with the state. Many individuals in New Jersey have faced similar charges and have chosen to use the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney for help and guidance in building a strong defense focused on achieving the best result attainable.
