Cops: Man Arrested For DWI After Showing Up Drunk To Motor Vehicle Test

A New Jersey man is facing a drunk driving charge after allegedly attempting to take a motor vehicle test while intoxicated, according to cops.

Stephen Goss, 53, was arrested last week at a Motor Vehicle Commission office when a state instructor detected “a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating” from his breath, according to a Randolph Township Police Department statement.

After cops were summoned, Goss underwent a field sobriety test, which indicated that he was impaired. A subsequent Breathalyzer test recorded his blood alcohol content at .13, well over the .08 legal limit.

Goss, who was booked on DWI and reckless driving charges, was eventually released in the care of a relative. Goss drove himself to the motor vehicle office for his December 11 road test, which he was not allowed to take.
