Port Authority Police had an odd experience in June when a driver swerved her way on a blown tire into Newark Airport.
They received multiple reports of a black Nissan Altima hitting curbs and guardrails – one of these collisions blew the tire on the car – that had just taken the exit to the airport around 10:30 that night.
By the time they caught up to it, the car was stopped at the airport and the driver, 31-year-old Dehabah R. Sylvester of Bloomfield, was chowing down on some cake.
Sylvester, who is the NPC Garden State bodybuilding champion, told police that she was pausing in her travels to eat and that she’d be on her way soon.
She appeared to be unaware of the flat tire or the fact that she’d been driving on the rim for quite a distance.
After a series of failed sobriety tests, Sylvester was arrested and charged with DWI and reckless driving.
A breath test revealed that her blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.
A DWI charge is never a laughing matter, and can have serious personal and professional ramifications.
