Suspected DWI Caught On Video – Pulled Over After Exiting Liquor Store

VIDEO: A man suspected of drinking and driving, was caught on video swerving his way to a liquor store, and then pulled over by police. Shimon Gifter, who caught the incident on video, tells TLS he was driving into Lakewood via Squankum Road, when he noticed the vehicle in front of him swerving in and out of oncoming traffic.

Believing it was a drunk driver, he called police.

Several miles later, Howell Police caught up with the driver as he was pulling out of a parking space after purchasing liquor at the Wawa shopping plaza. (Watch red van pull out of space).

TLS spoke with Sergeant Weg of the Howell Police who said they received a call for an erratic driver through 911, and after making contact with the driver – who began his alleged offense in Howell – they handed over the investigation to the Lakewood Police.

However, Lakewood Police say that they don’t have any record of a DWI arrest at that call, which indicates the driver was just distracted one way or another, possibly by texting while driving.

Lakewood Police did say however, that they arrested a DWI driver a short time later on Kennedy Boulevard, and impounded his vehicle. TLS/Shimon Gifter.

  1. the police always say “call us” If this driver was not DWI than the video should be proof for charges of “eradic driving” he crossed over the yellow line several times. Luckily he did not hit oncoming traffic.

    the person who took the video was SMART to call police and not approch or come any closer to the subject. Your SAFETY is #1

  2. perhaps your so called erratic driver was himself using his handheld device illegally as yourself. just make the call, the police do not need our video it only proves you were driving careless yourself as your car was all over the road behind the other alleged drunk driver. your lucky howell didnt give you a ticket as well

  3. Unlike “DashCamGuy” who clearly has his camera mounted to the dash, this guy was holding his camera with one hand and driving with the other, this making him just a big of risk as the guy he was following. I appreciate this situation, but not at the expense of having someone drive while holding a camera.

  4. Wow ! Let’s be honest. Shimon Gifter is a genious.He drives with one hand, videos w/ his other hand & called HPD with his toes ! Thanx HPD & LPD for keeping our roads safe. DB. h

  5. Once again the point is shot away with “well intended” individuals who need to add their on two cents worth. The point being here is, don’t drink and drive. Period. If you want to add your commentary about the dangers of video while driving speak to TLS about starting a new post. Otherwise use restraint because the only thing that the “well meaning” comment does is make the people commenting sound trite and frankly stupid.

  6. and again my comment isnt posted-
    why is this video still on the website? doesnt it clearly say that “Lakewood Police say that they don’t have any record of a DWI arrest at that call”? if i was the driver of that car (whose license plate is NOT blurred out in the video) i would definitely have a problem with this. and i know this comment will not be posted either..
