This happens way more often than it should…
Hoboken Police witnessed a vehicle driving through Columbus Park, in the 9th & Grand entrance and out the 10th & Grand exit, at 2:45 a.m. on Wednesday, April 3.
The public park is normally closed to vehicular traffic… because it’s a public park. Thankfully, no one was injured in the incident.
The car then continued north on Grand, driving the wrong way on a southbound street. PO Vega and PO Lombardi initiated a motor vehicle stop, and when they spoke to the arrestee they could smell a strong odor of alcoholic beverage observed signs of intoxication, including watery eyes and slurred speech.
Following field sobriety tests, Tiffany Poole (42, Weehawken), was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), DWI within 1000 feet of a school. Poole was also cited for refusal to provide a breath sample, refusal to submit to chemical testing, wrong way on a one way, and reckless driving.
