Boonton Township Police Arrest Man Who Drives to Police Station IntoxicatedEarlier this month, Boonton Township police arrested a man after he drove to the police department intoxicated.

Just after midnight, police officers pulled over a car for a motor vehicle violation on Valley Road. As the officers tried to speak with the two (2) occupants of the car, they smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle. It was also apparent to the officers that Wojciech Dymacz, the front-seat passenger, was intoxicated.

When the officers arrested searched the vehicle, they found that 25-year-old Stephen Chornodolsky, the driver of the vehicle, had a small amount of marijuana on him.

Mr. Chornodolsky was arrested and transported to the Boontown Township Police Department, where he was charged with marijuana possession, possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) in a motor vehicle, and improper use of high beams.

Mr. Dymacz was instructed by officers to leave the scene but not to drive the vehicle.

Inexplicably, Mr. Dymacz then drove into the police department parking lot to pick up Mr. Chornodolsky after Mr. Chornodolsky was released. At that time, Mr. Dymacz failed field sobriety tests and was arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI).

In New Jersey, DWI penalties are set forth in N.J.S.A. 39:4-50. If convicted of first offense DWI, Mr. Dymacz could be sentenced to 30 days in the county jail. Additionally, he could have his driver’s license suspended for up to one (1) year.

After being arrested and charged, Mr. Dymacz was released pending a court appearance.
