A woman from Hackettstown, NJ has been charged with a third offense DWI in Denville, New Jersey.
The suspect is a 36-year-old woman who resides in Hackettstown in Warren County, NJ. According to law enforcement officials, the suspect was operating a motor vehicle on Route 10 in Denville NJ when a patrol officer noticed her driving erratically and at an extremely low rate of speed. The Denville cop subsequently pulled over the suspect and approached the motor vehicle.
The police officer allegedly detected an odor of marijuana coming from the suspect’s car. When the cop inquired about the smell of drugs, a passenger in the suspect’s car reportedly admitted to possessing marijuana.
Denville NJ police ran a computer check on the suspect and learned that she had a suspended license. The suspect was then placed under arrest and charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and driving while suspended.
The suspect reportedly has two prior convictions for drunk driving. This means that a conviction for a third DWI offense within a 10-year period would likely result in significant penalties, including mandatory jail time.
