DOVER — On Sunday, April 14, at 1:22 a.m., Dover Police Officer Ulises Corona observed a 2021 Toyota Rav 4 speeding on East Blackwell Street. The vehicle was swerving erratically and struck the curb near 200 East Blackwell Street.

Officer Corona activated his emergency lights and caught up with the vehicle near South Salem Street. Despite attempts to signal the driver to stop, the vehicle continued, hitting the curb again and running a red light before finally pulling over upon hearing the siren.

Upon approaching the vehicle, Officer Corona detected a strong smell of alcohol emanating from the driver, Guillermo Vera-Lopez, 52, Dover. Field sobriety tests were conducted, which Mr. Vera failed.

Subsequently, Officer Corona placed Mr. Vera under arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol. He was then taken to the State Police Netcong Barracks for two Alco-Tests, which revealed a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .22%.

Following processing at Dover Police Headquarters, Mr. Vera was released to a responsible adult after signing a Liability Warning form.

Mr. Vera faces charges including Reckless Driving (39:4-96), Operating Under the Influence of Liquor or Drugs (39:4-50), Careless Driving (39:4-97), and Traffic on Marked Lanes (39:4-88).

Bunky’s Towing removed the vehicle from the scene.

A criminal complaint is merely an accusation. Despite this accusation, this Defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
