Man Accused Of Plowing Over Lamp Post, Street Sign While Driving Drunk In N.J.

FORT LEE, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) -- A Washington state man was allegedly driving drunk early Sunday, as he plowed over a lamp post, a street sign, a flood light, several bushes and a parking meter before finally being pulled over on the George Washington Bridge.

Miguel Guera, 28, of Yakima, Wash., was curbed by Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police around 5 a.m. Sunday, after officers found his vehicle had two flat tires and extensive damage, including a crushed roof.

Port Authority police spokesman Joe Pentangelo said investigators soon learned Guera had apparently been involved in several accidents in Fort Lee shortly before he was stopped.

Guera charged with drunken driving and numerous motor vehicle violations.
