The Secaucus Police Department arrested a Newark man last week for allegedly driving drunk and causing a crash that injured another driver, Police Chief Dennis Miller said.
On January 15th at approximately 10:38 p.m., the Secaucus PD was notified of a vehicle driving recklessly on the New Jersey Turnpike, where the vehicle reported to strike a guardrail in the area of exit 15X, the chief explained.
The vehicle subsequently struck a vehicle, injuring the driver, in the area of UPS Drive and County Avenue and police ultimately located the vehicle in the area of Centre Avenue and County Avenue.
A motor vehicle stop of the vehicle was conducted and as a result of the investigation, Khamar Abnathya, 31, of Newark, was arrested.
He was charged with assault by auto and driving while intoxicated.
Abnathya was issued his complaint warrant along with his motor vehicle summons for DWI, as well as an additional eight motor vehicle summonses, and was subsequently transported to the Hudson County Correctional Facility, police said.
