HOBOKEN, NJ – A New Jersey State Trooper was over twice the legal blood alcohol limit when he crashed into a police car in Hoboken early Saturday morning.
According to Daily Voice, 28-year-old Roy Sanchez was driving the wrong way on First Street when his car caught the attention of Officer Harry Montalvo at about 2 a.m. Montalvo attempted to pull Sanchez over who instead turned into a snowbank then backed up into the Officer’s car.
Sanchez then drove to the Hoboken Police station where other officers responded.
After a field sobriety test, it was determined that Sanchez was twice over the legal limit and also had an open container in his vehicle.
Sanchez, who has been a state trooper for more than three years and been previously been noted for heroic actions, was suspended without pay. He is also facing charges for the DWI, the open container, and reckless driving.
