Paterson Driver Charged With DWI


HANOVER — Hanover Township Police Officer Josh Williams arrested Mr. Jonathan Vergara, 34, from Paterson for DWI, on Wednesday, April 28.

Mr. Vergara was originally stopped for a motor vehicle violation when the odor of an alcoholic beverage was detected.

Subsequent tests resulted in Mr. Vergara being arrested and charged with tampering with records and filing a false record. He was also issued motor vehicle summonses for DWI, maintenance of lamps, traffic on a marked course, unregistered, suspended license, and fictitious plates. He was then released to a friend pending his court date.
