A Hackettstown, New Jersey woman faces charges for a third offense DWI in Denville, NJ.
The suspect, a 36-year-old resident of Hackettstown in Warren County, NJ, was allegedly driving her car on Route 10 when she committed a traffic violation. Denville NJ patrol cops noticed the suspect driving too slow on the highway, so they stopped her vehicle.

The cops ran a check on the suspect and reportedly discovered that her license had been suspended. Police arrested the suspect and charged her with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and driving with a suspended license.
According to officials, the suspect has at least two past convictions for drunk driving in New Jersey. A third conviction for DWI would lead to severe penalties, including a mandatory term of incarceration in the Morris County Jail in Morristown, New Jersey.
