A New Jersey man was allegedly driving an e-scooter and he is facing charges for allegations that he was navigating the electric vehicle while intoxicated.

In May, the city of Hoboken employed a 6-month program in order to see how beneficial it would be if electric scooters were readily available for people to rent as a mode of transportation. Their goal is to reduce traffic and give people an accessible and more environmentally friendly way to get around the city. The e-scooters have been issued an 18 MPH speed limit, and they are only permitted to be driven on the street and in bike lanes.

On Sunday afternoon, Hoboken officers reported that they spotted a man who was allegedly walking around in an off-balance manner, and they allegedly watched him proceed to unlock and climb on an e-scooter.

A father from Inglewood who was involved in a car accident allegedly caused by him driving under the influence of alcohol learned that he will face an upcoming trial for his charges. His 10-year-old daughter was a passenger in the front seat and she was initially reported in critical condition from the crash.

On October 6 Gil Paul Hernandez was driving through Torrance in his BMW with his daughter in the car. He has been accused of causing an accident involving three vehicles. According to witnesses at the scene Hernandez was driving erratically and at a high speed, and frequently changing lanes in order to pass other cars. His BMW crashed into a Chevrolet Impala in front of him, and he was unsuccessful in his attempt to stabilize the BMW before making impact with a Toyota Camry traveling on the opposite side of the street.

Officers arrived at the scene, and nearly an hour after the accident Hernandez agreed to breathalyzer tests which recorded 0.099 and 0.098 percent blood alcohol content. When he agreed to a blood test it came back as 0.09 percent. These numbers exceed the legal limit of 0.08 percent in the state of California.
