HOBOKEN – A Queens female was arrested in Hoboken Friday on DWI and various drug charges after drunkenly driving the wrong way down a one way street and not immediately pulling over for the officers.
It happened on April 17th at around 8:00 p.m. An officer that was parked in front of 79 Hudson St. observed the female driver going down a one way street the wrong way. After activating his vehicle lights and signaling the driver to pull over, the driver continued north on Hudson St. towards Newark St. It wasn’t until the officer turned the corner and observed the vehicle on Washington St. that the driver came to a complete stop in front of 201 Washington St.
The officer approached the vehicle and could smell an odor of an alcoholic beverage on her breath. When questioned about why it took her two blocks before stopping her vehicle she replied by shaking her head and saying, “No.” The officer then asked her if she was lost and got the same response, “No.”
She told police that she just left dinner and had consumed three glasses of wine. She was administered three different sobriety tests in which she failed.
Jennifer Kwan, 39, of Queens, NY was then placed under arrest. A search revealed a straw-like plastic tube containing a powder like substance believed to be suspected cocaine in her outer jacket. A small black zippered case labeled “CLOUD” was recovered from her purse along with two small yellow tinted bags containing a white powdery substance, believed to be cocaine, two clear cylinders containing a yellow-brown waxy substance, believed to be marijuana, and one pink “cloud” vapor pen, used to inhale the suspected marijuana.
Kwan is now facing charges of possession of CDS, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving while intoxicated, driving while intoxicated in a school zone, driving the wrong way on a one way street, and reckless driving.
