DWI Arrest: On March 29, 2015 at 1:36 p.m., Ptl. James Derricks responded to a residence on Third Street to investigate a report of a dispute involving an intoxicated male. Upon his arrival, Ptl. Derricks spoke with the resident who stated she was having a problem with her son who had come home intoxicated. The male was located inside a locked vehicle in the driveway of the property. After officers made multiple attempts to have him step from the vehicle, he had to be physically removed. As a result of a brief investigation, Keith A. Markwis, 56 years old from Pequannock, was arrested, transported to headquarters and processed. Mr. Markwis was charged with driving while intoxicated, refusing to submit samples of his breath, careless driving and disorderly conduct. He was released to another party and has a pending court appearance.
