A Florham Park ATV rider has been arrested on DWI and related charges following a crash in Millburn. Millburn police responded to reports of an ATV that had crashed on Passaic Avenue, and found Santos Rodriguez-Ocasio, 28, of Florham Park, on the scene with minor injuries.
Paramedics transported Rodriguez-Ocasio to St. Barnabas Hospital for treatment, and police later charged him with DWI, driving without a license, and two ATV violations.
It’s possible that Rodriguez-Ocasio thought that by taking a vehicle that wasn’t a car, he could avoid the risk of a DWI charge. Clearly that strategy failed not only in a legal sense, but in a safety and medical sense as well.
Operating any motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol in New Jersey puts you at risk for a DWI charge, and once police start investigating, you can trust them to throw every related infraction into the mix.
