Sprung From Cages Out On Highway Nine

From the “Tramps Like Us” version of passed-out-while-intoxicated comes this “DWI” arrest out of New Jersey:

A Holmdel man was charged with driving while intoxicated after police found him lying on the grass near his parked car, police said today…

Officer Paul Papamarkos was on patrol around 4:15 a.m. Friday when he found [Defendant]'s car parked on Loantaka Way, near a walking path. As he was checking out the vehicle, a 9-1-1 caller reported a man lying in the grass a short distance away.

After a brief search, Papamarkos found [Defendant] lying on his face in the grass. He was found to be highly intoxicated and arrested, Dachisen said.

I’m going to try to get the PC affidavit, or whatever the New Jersey equivalent is on this one. I’m betting it says he told the police he was driving home, then stopped his car, turned it off, got out, laid on the grass and went to sleep.

They’re going to try to use the admission of driving against him to prove “operating a motor vehicle” – or whatever that part of the statute says in the Garden State. More when I track down the PC.

At least he decided to stop. This should prove to be a bit messy. I am interested in hearing the outcome
