New Jersey police officer charged with DWI

Kicking back and having a few drinks with friends can be a good opportunity for fun. Unfortunately, alcohol can also lead individuals to make some bad decisions. A recent news story reveals details of one New Jersey man's struggle after he crashed a car and was charged with DWI by local police.

The man, a 22-year-old police officer himself, was allegedly driving in the early morning hours in December when his car struck a train trestle. He had two other people in his sports car during the 3:35 a.m. crash. One of the passengers was found trapped and unresponsive after the crash. The driver spent seven days being treated at a local hospital before he was finally released. 

After the crash, authorities completed sobriety testing and found the man to have been driving under the influence and also driving recklessly. The man was released from custody on a complaint summons and is scheduled to be back in court soon. Details about the man's job status with the police department was not clear. The Prosecutor's Office deferred comment and the Police Department has not yet spoken out about the issue. 

It is unfortunate when alcohol causes a person to make a serious mistake and get slapped with serious criminal charges. An individual does not need to face the long-term impact of a DWI alone because of a feeling of guilt or shame. New Jersey criminal defense attorneys know how to examine the evidence in these types of cases and can provide useful help.
