Bergen County Safety Director Charged with DWI in Oakland, NJ
The Bergen County director of safety and security faces severe penalties if he is convicted on with drunk driving charges in connection with an arrest in Oakland, NJ. Although the DWI case is supposed to be heard in Bergen County Superior Court in Hackensack, an assignment judge is thinking about transferring the case to another court due to a possible conflict of interest.
Oakland NJ police arrested the suspect on February 21 after being stopped by a patrol cop on Ramapo Valley Road in Oakland, NJ. According to the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, the suspect was under the influence of alcohol when he drove on the road that night. The Oakland NJ patrol officer pulled over the suspect after allegedly observing him drive erratically and hit a mailbox.
Police subsequently arrested the suspect and charged him with several traffic offenses, including Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), driving under the influence of alcohol in a school zone, improper turning, and having an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle.
While the DWI charges against the suspect are pending, he has been suspended without pay from his job in Bergen County.
