While monitoring traffic on Route 46 at approximately 1:57 a.m. on July 7, Fairfield Officer Jeffrey Dean observed a vehicle traveling west and failing to maintain its lane.

As a result of these observations, police administered field sobriety tests and arrested the man based upon the totality of the circumstances. He was transported to police headquarters and his vehicle impounded pursuant to New Jersey law.

While at headquarters, police said the defendant refused to submit to giving breath samples for the purpose of conducting chemical testing. After being charged, he was released on his own recognizance.

It should be noted that the charges against the individual are merely allegations and that he is presumed innocent until he either pleads guilty or is found guilty in a court of law.
