PATERSON, NJ -A 34-year-old Haledon faces drunk driving charges after allegedly crashing into the side of the Passaic County Administration Building while drunk in the early hours of Friday.

According to Sheriff Richard Berdnik, Jeffrey Concepcion struck several vehicles and caused severe damage to the county property when he crashed his 2005 Silver Nissan Altima into the DeGrasse Street side of the complex.

Concepcion is said to have given a breath sample resulting in .18% BAC, more than twice the legal limit in New Jersey. The suspect was transported to Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Wayne after complaining of back pain and then, once cleared, sent to Passaic County Jail.
