On Saturday, July 25, at approximately 1:55 am, Officer Raffaella Vastola stopped a 2002 Ford ZX5 operated by John Chiovitti, age 20, of Asbury, on Allerton Road after a computer inquiry revealed that the vehicle had an expired registration. During the stop, Ptl. Vastola detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage on Mr. Chiovitti’s breath and soon determined that he was intoxicated. Ptl. Vastola arrested Mr. Chiovitti and transported him to police headquarters where Mr. Chiovitti submitted samples of his breath for chemical testing to determine the content of alcohol in his blood. Ptl. Vastola charged Mr. Chiovitti with Underage Driving While Intoxicated, Driving An Expired Vehicle, Improper Backing In Street, and Failure to Produce Documents. He was released to the custody of a responsible adult and his vehicle was towed and impounded.
