According to the attorney working for a Washington City Councilman who has been charged with his fourth DUI, the charge will be viewed as a first-time offense.

On Monday afternoon, 42-year-old Matthew Staniszewski, a Washington City Councilman, was allegedly found behind the wheel of his Honda that was reportedly idle and askew on the side of the road in a position that was blocking oncoming traffic.

An officer approached the vehicle and reported that empty miniature bottles of liquor were laying on the floor of the car, and Staniszewski allegedly appeared rather disoriented.

A Councilman from Plainfield, New Jersey was arrested on December 9 for allegations that he was driving under the influence of alcohol after a series of curious events took place during and after he struck a tree in front of his home.

As reported by neighbors, a Hyndai Elantra allegedly operated by Councilman Barry Goode was driven into a tree late Friday night. In what was assumed as an attempt to stall the engine Goode put the car into park and held his foot on the gas.

A concerned neighbor tried to assist by opening the door to the driver’s side of the vehicle so that Goode would not become injured. Goode was then purportedly seen falling onto the ground. A neighbor used a cell phone camera to record the Councilman tumbling to the ground, and police later duplicated the footage for their reports.
