Driver stuck in snowbank charged with DWI

PARSIPPANY — While on patrol Parsippany-Troy Hills Officer Ralph McGinnis observed the driver of a 2016 Red Ford Focus attempting to dislodge their vehicle from a snowbank at 2:06 a.m. on Thursday, March 29.

Officer McGinnis made contact with the driver, Jahaziel Rodriquez, 31, Gaithersburg, MD. After a brief investigation he was placed under arrest for driving while intoxicated. He was transported to police headquarters where he was charged with Driving While Intoxicated and Driving While Suspended.

Rodriquez was also found to have multiple active warrants from Newark Municipal Court, Union City Municipal Court, and North Bergen Municipal Court. Mr. Rodriquez was released on his own recognizance on the Parsippany charges, however his custody was transferred to the North Bergen Police Department since he could not post bail on his active warrants from their jurisdiction.

Editors Note: A criminal complaint is merely an accusation. Despite this accusation, the defendant is presumed innocent until he or she is proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
