An accused drunken driver who allegedly fled from a traffic stop was captured when he crashed into a sign for an apartment complex in southern New Jersey.
Glassboro police tell the South Jersey Times that officers targeting suspected drunken and impaired drivers had stopped 62-year-old Bruce Berry Jr. around 11:30 p.m. Friday. The Barrington resident initially stopped his vehicle, but soon sped off with officers in pursuit.
A brief chase ensued through residential neighborhoods south of Rowan University’s campus. It ended when Berry’s vehicle crashed into the sign in front of the Campus Crossing complex on Route 322.
Berry was charged with eluding and several motor vehicle violations. His bail was set at $25,000 cash, and it wasn’t known if he had retained an attorney.
