Man charged with DWI, resisting arrest in Hackettstown

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – A Warren County man is facing several charges after police say he was driving while intoxicated and then resisted arrest Thursday morning in Hackettstown.

On October 21, at around 1:58 a.m., police received a report that a vehicle was traveling towards Wawa from Mount Olive Township and the driver was under the influence of alcohol. An officer located the vehicle, which was still running, parked in a no parking zone at Wawa, located at 299 Mountain Avenue, police said.

The officer then observed a male, who was later identified as Frank Menchon, 24, of Washington Township (Warren County), enter the driver side of the vehicle. While the officer spoke to Menchon, the officer detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage, police said.

When the officer was attempting to handcuff Menchon, he continued to pull his arm away and resisted arrest, police said.

Menchon was charged with resisting arrest, driving while intoxicated, careless driving, unclear plate, refusal to submit to breath test, safety glass requirement, and being parked in a no parking zone. He was released pending a court appearance, police said.
