A West Milford, N.J. man took the New York Jets blowout loss on Sunday particularly hard, allegedly trying to dull the pain with a joint, a baggie of marijuana with the requisite rolling papers and three-quarters of a bottle of bourbon, claiming he did it all because the “Jets suck,” police said.
On Sunday, as he was taking the field sobriety test after he allegedly rear-ended a car on a state highway, Christopher Greyshock, 57, told police that his inebriation was all due to the Jets’ misfortune, Capt. Larry Martin said.
Such was Greyshock’s alleged intoxication that police said they could smell it on his breath. The breath alcohol test corroborated police’s suspicions: Greyshock blew a .13 percent for blood alcohol concentration. In New Jersey, the legal limit is .08 percent.
On Sunday at 5:15 p.m. police were called to an accident at Alps Road and Route 23. When they arrived, police found the Wayne First Aid Squad attending to an injured woman and someone lying on the grass.
Greyshock told police he had rear-ended a car that had stopped in traffic, but was unable to walk straight and stumbled as he came to talk to officers, police said.
Greyshock’s car was impounded and police levied multiple charges against him, including assault by auto which resulted in injuries while driving under the influence, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving while under the influence, reckless driving and having an open container of alcohol in a car.
