A woman from the borough of Hopatcong, New Jersey is facing a charge of driving under the influence after driving her car into a pillar late at night on Wednesday, August 6.
The woman was driving near a Rite Aid when she hit a pillar at the store and then drove away from the scene. The police were called to find her. Officer Richard Sadowski responded to the call from the shopping plaza and looked for the white Pontiac that had hit the Rite Aid pillar.
The police found forty nine year old Denise Henry down the road from the shopping plaza and stopped the car. They arrested Henry and administered some field sobriety tests, which she failed. She was then taken to the headquarters of the local police, where the police administered an Alcotest, which is a breath analysis unit administered by New Jersey police.
In addition to being charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, Henry was also charged with failing to use a turn signal, reckless driving, failing to report an accident involving property damage, leaving the scene of an accident with property damage, driving an uninsured vehicle, and failing to wear a seatbelt while riding in a car.
Henry was later released from the police headquarters to a neighbor.
