On April 8th at approximately 2:00 a.m. Sgt. James Finnegan observed a 2013 Honda Civic traveling East on Cedarbrige Avenue.
As he traveled behind it, the operator pulled across two lanes of traffic in order to turn North onto New Hampshire Avenue. A motor vehicle stop was conducted a short distance away in the area of 1400 Ocean Avenue.
“When Sgt. Finnegan approached the drivers side window, the operator, 22 yr old Jasmine Vincent of Brick, gave reason to believe she was under the influence of alcohol and or a controlled dangerous substance,” Staffordsmith says.
Field sobriety tests were conducted and it was determined that Vincent was impaired and was placed under arrest.
Inside the vehicle, was a 24 year old male from from Jackson and Vincent’s six year old daughter.
The male was released from the scene and Vincent and her daughter were transported to headquarters.
Upon arrival, Vincent was given an opportunity to make arrangements for the care of her daughter.
Jasmine Vincent was ultimately charged with Driving While Intoxicated, Reckless Driving, Driving While Intoxicated with a Minor and Second Degree Child Endangerment. She was also served with two unrelated warrants for her arrest.
Bail was set for $2,500 with a 10% option. [TLS]
