New Jersey State Police Trooper Admits Drunk Driving after Crashing Car into Creek

By Lependorf & Silverstein on March 5, 2013

As reported by The Associated Press on March 3rd, 2013, and published on, a New Jersey state trooper has admitted to drinking while driving when in 2012, he crashed his unmarked police cruiser, hitting two parked cars in a Monmouth County beach neighborhood, drove his vehicle into a small backyard creek behind 2211 Main Street, and then fled the scene. One car was heavily damaged, and the other was totaled. The officer was not on duty at the time of the crash. The officer’s driver’s license was suspended for three months, and he was fined $514. The trooper was assigned to an elite emergency response unit at the time.

The incident occurred at 2:45 p.m. on July 25th. The two cars struck were fortunately not occupied; however this is not always the case in drunk driving incidents. Such accidents are often the most devastating, resulting in serious injury or even death to innocent victims.

New Jersey State Police policy on the use of alcohol states that troopers are prohibited from drinking even while on vacation. Drinking might have an effect on their ability to perform their jobs since they could be called in to work at any time.
