DOVER — On Monday, May 27, at 2:05 a.m., Ms. Gina Padilla-Diaz, 34, Budd Lake, was traveling west on West Blackwell Street when her vehicle, a 2021 Honda CRV ran off the roadway to the right and struck a utility pole and the rear boulder retaining wall of 3 Hillsdale Avenue.

The vehicle suffered from heavy front-end damage with airbag deployment.

Dover Police Officer Kristopher Martinez arrived at the scene and observed Padilla with bloodshot eyes, watery eyes, droopy eyelids, and slurred speech. Officer Martinez administered field sobriety tests, which Padilla failed.

The Officer then advised the driver she was under arrest for driving while intoxicated (DWI).

Officer Christopher Caraig searched the driver’s vehicle, which revealed negative results for intoxicants. Sergeant Wilkes remained with the car until Bunky’s Towing towed it from the scene for impound.

She was transported to the Wharton Police Department, where Officer Michael Flora administered the Alcotest to the driver. The driver provided two breath samples, and the Alcotest resulted in a 0.15% blood alcohol concentration (BAC).

Ms. Gina Padilla-Diaz was issued the following summonses pending court on June 10, 2024, at 12:30 p.m. at the Dover Municipal Court:

•Driving while intoxicated:
39:4-50 – Ticket Number: 1409 E24 002975
•Failure to observe traffic lanes:
39:4-88 – Ticket Number 1409 E24 002976
•Careless driving:
39:4-97 – Ticket Number: 1409 E24 002977

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.
