Police are always vigilant for signs of drunk driving, but some nights of the year, they’re especially watchful. New Year’s Eve, and overnight into the wee hours of New Year’s Day is a perfect illustration of a time when it really is best to stay put and sleep it off.
Bernards Township police can tell you why: around 3:00 a.m. on January 1, a patrol officer spotted a 1996 BMW driving on Martinsville Road and pulled it over.
Once the officer was at the vehicle, the driver, Justin Ramirez, 25, of Somerville, appeared to be intoxicated and the officer smelled alcohol on him. Field sobriety tests were performed, and Ramirez was arrested and charged with DWI.
It can be just that simple. If you’ve been arrested for DWI in New Jersey, fight back with the experienced legal guidance that’s helped more than 1,400 New Jersey drivers avoid conviction on DWI and related charges.
