Rosario Galluzzo, 38, of Kenilworth, was charged with driving under the influence, possession of a controlled dangerous substance (LSD) and reckless driving, according to Port Authority police spokesman Joe Pentangelo.
At about 10 p.m. yesterday, Port Authority Police Officer John Adams saw a man driving a 1999 Honda Civic eastbound on the NJ Turnpike extension near the Holland Tunnel in Jersey City, authorities said.
Drivers around the Honda were honking their horns and flashing their high beams due to the vehicles very low rate of speed. Police drew closer to the Honda and noticed the inspection sticker was expired, officials said.
The vehicle swerved onto the shoulder of the road and crossing over the solid white line, prompting Adams to pull the suspect over. When the driver got out of the Honda, police noticed that his eyes were glassy and bloodshot, authorities said.
Shortly before failing a field sobriety test, the suspect volunteered to leave the car at the location and walk home and was placed under arrest, police said.
55 sticker tabs of suspected LSD was found in a cigarette pack on top of the Honda’s center console along with a metal push rod. Additionally, Galluzzo was in possession of a glass pipe with suspected drug residue and steel wool, commonly used to smoke crack cocaine, officials said.
