A Barnegat, New Jersey, woman is facing several charges after backing her car into a mailbox in Lacey, which left her car stuck on a retaining wall and unable to move forward. Lacey police received a report on July 8 that a motor vehicle accident had occurred in the early evening. Officer Michael Hein arrived on the scene to find Marie D. Alfieri, 60, had driven over a mailbox in the 1000 block of Bowsprit Point and that her car had become trapped on an adjacent retaining wall.
Hein’s investigation revealed evidence of intoxication, and he charged Alfieri with DWI, reckless driving, and failure to maintain lane. As directed by John’s Law, her car was also impounded for twelve hours, which at least meant that it would be freed from the retaining wall.
