Mick Julmice, 29, of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, was charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and possession of a contain of alcohol in an automobile, according to Port Authority police spokesman Joe Pentangelo.
At about 3:15 p.m. yesterday, a Port Authority police officer was on patrol in the Holland Tunnel and saw the suspect driving a 2015 Infiniti. The officer was in a marked patrol car behind the Infiniti and saw the suspect suddenly swerve crossing over the double solid line, officials said.
The officer noted the suspect continued weaving and other vehicles had to swerve and brake to avoid colliding with him. When Julmice exited the tunnel, his auto struck the median curb with its right front wheel, then ignoring instructions to pull over, authorities said.
Two additional police cars helped box in the suspect on 14 Street in Jersey City. When interviewing Julmice, officials noticed he appeared to be disoriented.
His eyes were red and glassy and a smell of alcohol was on his person. The suspect failed a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer test, blowing a .21 – more than two times the legal limit – before being placed under arrest, police said.
