He faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted on both counts.

The 36 year old officer, Angelo Vasile, who had served with the Harvey Cedars police force for six years, died shortly after the crash.

Vasile was driving his motorcycle on Route 9 South when he was struck. He was transported to Kimball Medical Center in Lakewood, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. AP/TLS
