PARSIPPANY — On Sunday, June 30, at 10:08 p.m., Parsippany Police Officer Steven Kurza was on patrol on Route 46 near Waterview Boulevard and observed a 2021 Black Hyundai  ELN attempting to cross the intersection of Route 46 East and Waterview Boulevard. The officer maneuvered the patrol vehicle around the vehicle and initiated a motor vehicle stop in the parking lot of Parsippany Commons, 3219 Route 46 East.

Officer Kurza spoke to the driver, Gina Grant, 38, Whippany. Grant appeared to be slurring her speech and had difficulty maintaining a conversation.

Patrolman Ohlsen and Sergeant Joseph Kornas arrived on the scene shortly after that. Sergeant Kornas approached the vehicle from the driver’s side and spoke to Ms. Grant. At that point, Sergeant Kornas noticed an odor of alcoholic beverages, which he detected when talking to Ms. Grant. Patrolman Kurza approached the vehicle and advised Ms. Grant that he would administer a field sobriety test, which she initially refused. Grant eventually consented to perform the tests. Numerous tests were performed, and she was unable to keep her balance.

Due to the circumstances, Grant was arrested for suspicion of Driving While Intoxicated. She was transported to Parsippany Police Headquarters, where Patrolman Hughes conducted Alcotest procedures, which revealed a BAC of .17. Ron and Sons Towing removed her vehicle from the scene.

Grant was issued the following summons. Failure of observe Traffic Control Devices (39:4:81); Operating under influences of liquor or alcohol (39:4-50) and reckless driving (39:4-96)

Ms. Grant was released to a responsible person and issued a court date of June 30.
