If you’re going to be drinking, it’s important that you choose wisely when it comes to where you sleep it off.
One New Jersey driver learned the hard way that a Wawa parking lot is not a good choice.
It happened on October 26, when employees of the Wawa on Route 9 in Lacey called police to report that a woman was sleeping in a car outside.
Officers Martin Julian and Patrick Watkins arrived at the scene at 7:23 p.m. and found Jaymee Tice-Britton, 35, asleep behind the wheel in her vehicle.
Media reports say that an “investigation” occurred, which may have included a visual search of the interior of the car, field sobriety tests, and questions intended to determine whether Tice-Britton had been drinking.
Apparently, the investigation yielded results, because Tice-Britton was taken to police headquarters and now faces charges of reckless driving, DWI, and had her car impounded pursuant to John’s Law.
All in all, not a good evening for the Forked River woman.
