A Boontown township police officer responded to a 911 call from a driver requesting assistance around 1:30 a.m. earlier this month and found a Dover woman who was apparently intoxicated. The woman called 911 and gave a description of her vehicle but hung up before providing her location. Police canvassed the area and found a vehicle with a similar description. When police approached the vehicle, the driver was incoherent from intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests. Her passenger, another female, was arrested and charged with simple assault. It is unclear whether the assault was on a law enforcement officer or the driver of the vehicle. The driver was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI). Both individuals were later released from police headquarters after being processed and have pending court dates in the Boonton Municipal Court.
