A Barnegat woman probably didn’t get the type of help she was looking for when she recently flagged down a Lacey police officer and then pulled into a parking lot off Route 9 North in Forked River.
Officer Brian Holt was on patrol when he saw Lisa Aguayo, 46, waving him over, then followed her into the lot.
He determined that she was likely intoxicated, while further investigation revealed that her passenger, Michael Wiston, 47, was in possession of a small amount of marijuana.
Holt arrested both of them and transported them to police headquarters, where Aguayo was charged with DWI, reckless driving, driving with an open container of alcohol, and refusal.
Wiston was given a summons for possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana.
The vehicle was impounded under the terms of John’s Law.
Press accounts do not reveal why Aguayo flagged her arresting officer down in the first place.
DWI charges happen all the time, but there are defenses in every case.
