MOUNT OLIVE TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – A New York man is facing several charges including driving while intoxicated after police say they found his vehicle parked on the center median of Route 46 in Mount Olive Township.

On May 25, at 10:12 p.m., an officer responded to the intersection of Route 46 East and International Drive North for a Honda pickup truck parked on the center median.

The officer located the vehicle and made contact with the driver, who was identified as Oscar Moranulloa, 36, of Brooklyn. The officer observed obvious signs of impairment and detected an odor of alcoholic beverage on his breath, police said.

Moranulloa was asked to exit the vehicle to perform standardized field sobriety tests and as he exited the vehicle, the officer observed an alcoholic beverage can in the driver side door panel and several discarded alcohol beverage containers in the vehicle, police said.

During the course of the investigation, the officer located new passenger side damage, but was not able to determine the cause of the damage, police said.

Upon completion of the investigation, Moranulloa was arrested for suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol. He was issued summonses for DWI, reckless driving, failure to maintain a lane and open containers.

Moranulloa was released to a sober driver, pending a court appearance.
