Driver in Glen Rock Demanded Whiskey BEFORE He’d Take Sobriety Test

In what might be one of the weirdest pieces of news we have reported on yet, a 30-year old crashed his car into a tree and when the police showed up he said the only way he would “properly complete breath tests” was if he had a drink. He specifically wanted whiskey. To make matters even worse for the driver, his record also showed that he has an active warrant.

Due to his high level of inebriation, the man ended up being taken by ambulance to a medical center to receive detox. We can only hope that he finds alcohol rehab in NJ sooner than later.
