STATEN ISLAND, N.Y.– Police arrested a 51-year-old man — found passed out behind the wheel Saturday afternoon near the entrance to the National Grid building in Mariners Harbor — and charged him with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).
Jesus Moran, of Kyle Court in Arden Heights was charged with (DWI) in connection with the incident at 200 Gulf Avenue, according to a written statement from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
Port Authority Police Captain Steven Yablonsky spotted a 2008 silver Nissan Altima with Pennsylvania plates blocking a section of road at about 2 p.m. Yablonsky approached Moran, who had his eyes closed, keys in the ignition and the car in park, the spokesman said.
When Moran awakened, he waved his arms as he attempted to exit the vehicle, and he smelled of alcohol and was unsteady on his feet, said the spokesman.
Police said Moran’s blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit.
