What not to do when pulled over for DWI in Highlands

rt 36 quickchekFriday night a Middletown teen was charged with driving while intoxicated,  as well as eluding the police, refusal to submit to breath tests, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to report an accident, no headlights, failure to maintain lanes, unlicensed driver, unregistered vehicle and uninsured vehicle. She later was released with a pending court date. (I’m kind of wondering why there wasn’t a drinking underage  tagged on..)

Let’s go over the mistakes this kid made:

Mistake #1: Getting drunk at 18 and getting behind the wheel of a car that’s not yours

Mistake #2: Deciding to go to Quick Chek after Mistake #1 and actually going in while an on duty PD was also in there

Mistake #3: When pulled over by PD that saw you in Quick Chek, as he’s walking toward the car take off through intersection

Mistake #4: Hit 3 park cars trying to escape

Mistake #5: Ditch the car,  hide behind a house and pretend it never happened.

Luckily no one was seriously hurt, except for maybe the drivers ego.  Hopefully this was a life lesson.
