Leg on Fire, Fence Full of Bullet Holes
Also, one woman shows us an even worse way to get a DWI charge
Each week, Patch takes a peek at some of the more surprising, shocking, stunning and occasionally silly police-related incidents reported throughout New Jersey for "OMGs from NJ PDs."
Some of the recent reports:
Into the Lion's Den: Driving under the influence is generally a bad idea. Driving under the influence in front of an officer? An even worse idea. And driving under the influence to a whole building of them? Well, we can't say that one's on our to-do list. Yet Kinnelon police say a Pompton Plains woman did just that, when she showed up intoxicated to pick up a police report—then, presumably, became the subject of another one.
I'll Be Back: Well, he didn't lie, per say. Toms River police say a resident of a Red Roof Inn told the manager he just needed to run to the bank to get $350 owed for a bill—and that's exactly what the man did. Only, the thing is, police say, when he got to the bank, he didn't whip out an ATM card or request a withdrawl from his account—instead, he handed a teller a note to rob the place. And as it turns out, they frown on that sort of thing in Toms River. A suspect was arrested without incident after a police dog helped track him to the inn, police said.
Fences to Mend: Here's one way to blow of steam—though not one we'd suggest. Fanwood police say a man was arrested on several weapons charges after firing six rounds at a neighbor's fence. No one was hurt, though we imagine the fence has seen better days.
That's Hot: Usually, after a night of heavy drinking, a hangover is about the worst thing you'll feel in the morning. Maybe some pangs of regret over whatever you did the night before. But, generally, you don't feel the rush of panic that comes from realizing your leg is on fire. Generally. NJ.com has the story out of Bridgeton.
