Police Arrest Driver, 16, on DWI Charge

A local youth was taken into custody for driving while intoxicated.

Cranford police arrested a local teenager for being drunk behind the wheel of a car last weekend. The arrest was made by officer Thomas Stiansen who initially saw a vehicle stuck in the mud near Crane Parkway and Hillside Avenue around 10p.m. on Saturday.

The 16-year-old resident was also charged with careless driving and driving without a license, according to a police report.

The youth was taken to police headquarters to be processed and was released to a parent, pending an appearance in municipal court.

They grow up so fast... But seriously, I think it was less dangerous to be stupid when I was sixteen. Or maybe I'm just being nostalgic. Anyway, I hope this is the turning point the youth needs to set the rest of his life on the right path. You only get so many chances.
