'Fishtailing' Driver Lands 2nd DWI Charge, Police Say

Wayne resident also had outstanding drunken driving warrant from his hometown.

A Wayne man was charged with driving while intoxicated after his erratic driving caught the attention of Parsippany Police last Friday, according to a department statement.

After getting a report of a possible drunken driver, at about 9:49 p.m., Officers Peter Kolln and Robert Smolen headed to Route 53 south, where they saw a red 1998 Toyota SUV “fishtail” as it drove toward the officers, Sgt. Yvonne Christiano said.

After stopping the driver, identified as 28-year-old Michael P. Durant, police placed him under arrest. Subsequently, Christiano said, they discovered that the man had an active DWI arrest warrant in the amount of $1,114 out of Wayne on a DWI charge.

Durant was charged with DWI and driving on a suspended license.

Wayne Police authorized Durant's release on his own recognizance after he reportedly became sober and pending a court appearance.
