Morris County officer finishes food delivery after Uber Eats driver’s arrest

FLORHAM PARK BOROUGH, NJ (Morris County) – A Florham Park Borough police officer delivered a takeout order to an Uber Eats customer last month after police arrested the delivery driver for having an outstanding warrant.

On Jan. 21, at 8:23 p.m., Officer Mike Zvolensky was on routine patrol in the center of town when a random plate inquiry of a passing vehicle showed the registered owner to have an outstanding warrant, police said.

The officer stopped the vehicle on Felch Road and upon confirming the identity of the driver and the validity of the $1,000 Denville Township Municipal Court traffic warrant, he arrested the driver, who was identified as a 60-year-old Denville Township woman, police said.

After being processed, she was turned over to the Denville Township police, authorities said.

“On a side note, the defendant was operating as an Uber Eats driver at the time of her arrest, and so as to not make our residents go hungry, Officer Alex Tredy completed her food delivery to a home on Summit Rd. However, we think the food got cold and no, he did not get a tip,” police said.

“Sorry for the cold food,” police said.
