Police: Drunk Driver Was Triple Legal Limit
The following arrest information was supplied by the Morristown Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.
Police say a Montville man pulled over for suspected driving while intoxicated had a Blood Alcohol Content triple the legal limit allowed in New Jersey.
Glen Gambal, 43, of Montville, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, careless driving and failure to maintain a lane at 1:30 a.m. on June 21. Officer Adam Khoudja, in his report, noted Gambal's Audi SUV was unable to maintain a lane on Morris Street, even occasionally drifting over the double-yellow lines separating traffic direction. As his vehicle approached the Morris and Elm intersection, it slowed despite Gambal having a green light, according to the report.
Khoudja activated his lights, but Gambal's vehicle continued driving until it reached the I-287 North entrance, according to the report. At this point, Khoudja activated his siren and Gambal finally pulled over, stopping in a jerking halt, according to the report.
When asked if he had been drinking that evening, Gambal told the officer, "I had two beers," according to the report. Later, during processing, Gambal admitted to having five or six beers and two Martinis during dinner, and additional drinks later at Grasshopper off the Green, according to the report.
During a Blood Alcohol Content breath test conducted at the Morristown Police Station, Gambal was recorded as having a .24 percent BAC level, or triple the legal limit of .08 percent, according to the report.
Gambal was later released into the custody of a family member, according to the report.
