Drunk Yakima man leaves trail of damage in New Jersey

FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a Washington man who allegedly was driving drunk ran over a light pole, a street sign, a flood light, several bushes and a parking meter before he was finally stopped on the George Washington Bridge.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police stopped 28-year-old Miguel Guera of Yakima around 5 a.m. Sunday after noticing his vehicle had two flat tires and extensive damage, including a crushed roof.

Port Authority police spokesman Joe Pentangelo says investigators soon learned Guera had apparently been involved in several accidents in Fort Lee shortly before he was stopped. He's charged with drunken driving and numerous motor vehicle violations.

A phone number for Brown could not be found Sunday afternoon, and it was not known if he had retained a lawyer.
