Newark NJ Man Arrested for Drunk Driving in Jersey City Twice in Two Weeks

Newark New Jersey DWI ChargesA Newark New Jersey man was recently busted for an alleged drunk driving offense, marking the second time in two weeks that he has been charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).

The second arrest was made around 4:15 a.m. According to law enforcement, the 29-year-old suspect was driving his 2003 Hyundai on 14th Street in Jersey City, just outside the Holland Tunnel, when a Port Authority patrol officer saw the vehicle swerving.

The Port Authority cop followed the suspect’s car and noticed that the vehicle had a defective taillight. The police officer eventually stopped the suspect’s car around the Holland Tunnel.

The Port Authority officer spoke with the driver, who reportedly appeared intoxicated, with red eyes.

At some point during the conversation, the suspect told the police officer that he had been arrested for drunk driving on Route 1&9 in Jersey City two weeks earlier. Remarkably, the suspect was arrested by the same Port Authority police officer. This time, the suspect reportedly asked the police officer for “another chance.”

The patrol cop administered field sobriety tests, which the suspect allegedly failed.

The suspect was subsequently placed under arrest and charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).

The suspect, who lives in Newark, NJ, was also cited for reckless driving. Additionally, the suspect already faces DWI charges from the earlier drunk driving incident.
