Morristown police blotter: Beware of one-way streets and bank vestibules



If you’ve ever been on a highway when someone is driving in the wrong direction, you know how terrifying that can be.

Sgt. David Tissot pulled over Zachary Wehner, 35, of Lafayette, driving the wrong way on Morris Avenue shortly before 2 am on Jan. 24, 2013. The motorist was about to drive onto the Route 287 northbound exit ramp, against traffic, according to the police report.

Zachary told Police Officer Joseph Heuneman that he had consumed five beers at Sona Thirteen, the report stated. The motorist was charged with driving while intoxicated, and with refusing to take submit breath samples for analysis.


It’s not the sort of deposit that banks appreciate.

In the wee hours (sorry, couldn’t resist) of Jan. 20, Police Officer James Green responded to a tip that a young woman had passed out in the ATM vestibule of the Bank of America at North Park Place, near the Green.

The officer discovered the woman on her back, unconscious, in a pool of her own urine.

When he awakened her, around 3:20 am, she was incoherent, unable to remember her last name or her location, according to the police report.

The Morristown Ambulance Squad took the 25-year-old Mountain Lakes resident to Morristown Medical Center. Police charged her with public urination, which carries a $500 fine upon conviction.
