Accidents with D.W.I. Arrest:  On January 8, 2018 at 5:43 p.m., Ptl. Sean Higgins responded to the Boulevard and Route 23 intersection to investigate a report of a motor vehicle accident.  Upon his arrival, Ptl. Higgins discovered that a N.J. Department of Transportation plow truck had side swiped a vehicle.  The truck driver exited his truck, inspected the damage, returned to his vehicle, began to drive away and then struck a second vehicle in the rear.  Neither accident resulted in any injuries.  In speaking with the truck driver, officers observed several behaviors and signs consistent with alcohol impairment.  After performing several field sobriety tests, Roger S. Attieh, 36 years old from Boonton, was arrested, transported to headquarters and processed.  Mr. Attieh was charged with driving while intoxicated, driving while intoxicated in a commercial motor vehicle and reckless driving.  He was released to a third party and has a pending appearance in municipal court.
