Hackettstown Woman Grabs DWI After Stumbling Into Convenience Store

New Jersey Drunk Driving Charges Defense Lawyer

For one Hackettstown woman, the choice to stagger into a convenience store at 2:20am for some snacks- and several that preceded it – have led to a string of charges.

According to police, Stella Pastucci, 47, pulled into the Quick Chek on Route 182 just after 2:00 in the morning, striking a pole with her vehicle as she did so.

She then stumbled into the store, where staff alerted police to the accident outside and that the driver was inside.

When an officer arrived, he spoke to Pastucci and noted that she had a strong odor of alcohol about her.

Though she was not in her car at the time of her interaction with the officer, she was arrested and charged with DWI, careless driving, DWI in a school zone, and refusal.

She was later released, pending a court appearance.
