Parsippany Cop Arrested for DWI After Crash, Report Says

Randolph resident says he was run off the road when police found his truck in a front yard.

An off-duty Parsippany police officer was arrested for driving while intoxicated after running his car off the road in his hometown of Randolph, according to a news report.

John Freudenberg, 30, crashed his pick-up truck into the front yard of a Randolph home Saturday night, nj.com reported. When officers arrived on scene, they were told by Freudenberg that he was run off the road. 

While Freudenberg identified himself as a Parsippany officer, he did not use that as a means to get out of trouble, the report said. Freudenberg was arrested after taking field sobriety tests, and did take a breath test. The figures from the breath test were not available.

There was a passenger in the vehicle, but neither person requested medical attention after the crash, according to the report.

Way to set a great example. he should be removed from the police force.

and remove his pension. if he can't abide by the law (and up hold it) that's his own problem...not the taxpayers

This guy better lose his job AND ESPECIALLY lose his pension. Us taxpayers are being squeezed far too much as it is with the lavish pay and benefits of town employees.

Luckily he didn't kill anyone. Hope he remembers this for the rest of his life.

Hey John, White collar town employees do make lavish pay, especially the women, and we pay into our benefits like everyother employed person.
John February 11, 2014 at 11:43 AM
Don't give me any sob story about how hard you have it Karen. My wife worked in a city municipality for years and she would be the first to tell you her pay and benefits far exceeded a similar job in the private sector. There is something wrong when the citizens in the community are worse off than the people who are supposed to serve them. Just remember you work for me - not the other way around.

Maybe your wife is different. Not all state or town workers make a lot of money. I know quite a few who are seriously underpaid compared to the private sector.

Let's remember, innocent until proven guilty. However, it appears as though the "blue wall" is up already. Breath test machines give the results immediately, so the figures ARE available, just not being released.

Sad. Former EMS Captain and Eagle Scout. If anyone should know better... ...If he has a problem, I hope he gets the help he needs before returning to work.

John, You can whine and cry about the pension ONCE the taxpayers of this state REPLACE what was TAKEN from the pension for their benefit by past governors, AND the current one makes the MANDATORY PAYMENT! Until them choose a better argument! The fact is that 1/3 of 1 cent of every tax dollar is supposed to go to the pension, but they have not made a payment in years! If you paid 10K in taxes it would take you almost 300 years to contribute what the average cop contributes in A MONTH!! Oh, BTW cops are taxpayers too!

Richard, Drop the conspiracy theory....nothing is being hidden. The guy was charged, so the reading is only to satisfy nosey people like yourself!
1fairguy February 11, 2014 at 08:12 PM
John, hopefully your kids (if you have any) followed your wife's lead! By your jealous tone she surely was more successful than you! She is probably still working while you sit at home eating bon-bons!!!LOL
Richard February 11, 2014 at 08:21 PM
1fairguy, why does every other person charged with DWI get their breath test reading plastered in the newspaper, except when a police officer is charged? What's good for the goose is good for the gander. If Jason K is a decent reporter, he will find out and supplement his report.
