DOVER — Mr. Victor Romerro Aleman, 44, of Dover, was driving a 2014 Ram R25 on Saturday, June 15, at 12:05 a.m., when he exited the parking lot of 112 East Blackwell Street and struck a parked 2009 Mitsubishi Eclipse. After the collision, Mr. Aleman fled the scene but was later located on River Street. Mr. Aleman, who was unlicensed and under the influence of alcohol, was apprehended by Dover Township Police Officer Errick Williams.

Officer Williams investigated the incident, followed the vehicle, initiated a traffic stop, and activated the emergency lights. When he approached the driver’s side of the vehicle, he observed Mr. Aleman standing outside with his passenger, not in the driver’s seat. Officer Williams identified Mr. Aleman as the driver and requested his documents.

When asked why he fled the scene, Mr. Aleman denied striking a vehicle. Officer Williams noticed Mr. Aleman had bloodshot, watery eyes and detected the odor of alcoholic beverages from inside the car. Mr. Aleman admitted he had no New Jersey driver’s license, only an ID from Mexico.

Mr. Aleman failed numerous field sobriety tests and was placed under arrest for DWI. A search of his vehicle revealed an open bottle of Jameson Irish Whiskey on the floor near the dashboard. Bunky’s Towing towed his car, and he was transported to Wharton Police for breath samples, which resulted in a reading of .24%. He was then transported to Dover Police Headquarters and issued the following summonses:

  • E24-003354 39:4-50 Operating Under Influence of Liquor or Drugs
  • E24-003361 39:3-29C Fail to Possess Driver Insurance Card

  • E24-003364 39:4-51B Open Container of Alcohol or Unsealed Cannabis in Motor Vehicle
  • E24-003365 39:4-96 Reckless Driving

Mr. Aleman was released to a responsible adult with a court date set for June 24, 2024.
