Andrew J. Adell, 30, a six-year veteran of the Manalapan Police Department, admitted in court Monday that he was driving drunk on March 6 in his 2004 Jeep when he attempted to make a right turn onto South Street in Colts Neck before veering off the highway and colliding head-on with a 2003 Ford driven by Robert Felix, 40, of Keansburg, according to testimony offered to state Superior Court Judge Francis P. DeStefano.
How nice of them to just force him to resign his post instead of just firing his ass. He admitted to being twice above the legal limit, and he even hit someone resulting in severe bodily harm. The fact they didn’t fire him still allows him the ability to find a job some place else. It appears that the assault by auto charge is a misdemeanor offense in New Jersey meaning he’s not hit by the costs that come with a felony.
He’s been given a second chance by his department by not just firing his ass and putting that black mark on his record. How many non-leo civilians would get that type of second chance?
State Sponsored Criminal Count 209: Andrew J. Adell
Because when you are twice the legal limit and run over a pedestrian you shouldn’t be fired. Instead you can resign to go work some place else.
