An NJ DUI offender caused a blackout by crashing into an electrical pole on March, 15.
Joe Ramos was under the influence of alcohol when he crashed into a pole that provided nearby houses and businesses with electricity. A patrolling officer noticed that the traffic lights weren’t working and later arrived on the scene of Ramos’ crash.
Luckily, there were no injuries, according to the Lawrenceville Patch.
Ramos refused a breathalyzer test and was charged with a DWI (driving while intoxicated), reckless driving, breath test refusal, and failure to maintain a lane.
Often times, people who are arrested for a DWI in NJ face additional charges when any type of property damage is involved. The penalties may include increased fines as well as a longer probation and a longer license suspension.
