A Wanaque New Jersey man allegedly eluded police officers during a high-speed pursuit through Parsippany, NJ.
According to law enforcement, a Parsippany patrol cop spotted the suspect’s vehicle parked on the side of the driveway apron of the Days Inn in Parsippany, New Jersey. The car’s blinker was allegedly turned on and the stereo volume was noticeably high.
The police officer moved toward the suspect’s car and reportedly observed that the suspect was “slumped to the right side” inside the vehicle. The officer knocked on the window multiple times; the suspect eventually woke up.
The Parsippany NJ police officer asked the suspect to provide his license and registration. According to authorities, the suspect was unable to provide the documentations; instead, he allegedly started his engine and drove away.
Police pursued the suspect down Route 46 east, traveling in Parsippany New Jersey and several neighboring areas.
The 39-year-old suspect, who resides in the Haskell section of Wanaque, was eventually pulled over and arrested. He was subsequently charged with several traffic violations, including eluding an officer, speeding, reckless driving, careless driving, driving without a license, failure to observe traffic lanes, failure to maintain lane, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, failure to give proper signal, and failure to yield at an intersection.
After being placed under arrest and processed, the suspect was transported to the Morris County Jail in Morristown, NJ. He was being held at the correctional facility on a $25K bail amount.
