Yes, yes you did read the headline right. You just can’t make this stuff up.
Michael Woodward was picked up by Highlands Police after he ran from a marked patrol car around 12:45 a.m. Feb 25th and discarded several items on Rt 36. Apparently, Woodward was painting his nickname, “Woody”, on the street signs and some bus stops on the highway. (You can see his handiwork on the bus stop on Waterwitch & Rt 36)
(Did I mention he was 39?) Mid life crisis maybe? Sandy PTSD?
He was charged with 14 counts of criminal mischief and taken to Monmouth County Correctional Institution on $15,000 bail.
