New Jersey man arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated

New Jersey authorities recently arrested a man on charges of drunk driving. However, police allege that the man resisted arrest. As such, driving while intoxicated is not the only charge he will have to face in court. Indeed, his alleged behavior has seemingly made something that was already a difficult situation even worse.

According to New Jersey authorities, they pulled over a 43-year-old man who was driving his vehicle in Hackettstown along Route 45. Upon stopping the man, however, police say that he refused to get out of his vehicle. In fact, police say that he held onto his steering wheel tightly and even leveraged his foot against the door jamb so that officers found it exceedingly difficult to remove him.

Eventually, officers extracted the man from his car, and he was transported to police headquarters. There, authorities claim that he spat on an officer and pushed a table at an officer with his feet. In addition to being charged with driving while intoxicated, the man will face charges of aggravated assault on an officer and numerous other counts.

This driving while intoxicated case may turn on the precise details of exactly what happened on this particular night. At this time, the only information available is what law enforcement authorities provided to news sources, and the accused man's version of the events is as yet unknown. Fortunately, he will have the opportunity to defend himself in a court of law. It remains to be seen if he may be able to cast doubt on prosecution's version of what occurred as he fights to preserve his legal rights and achieve a satisfactory outcome.
