Who is Brian Pesce? NJ police chief seen lying in street with his pants DOWN during DUI arrest
Bordentown Township Police Chief Brian Pesce suffered a head injury and was admitted to a hospital
A drunk New Jersey police officer chief was found lying in the middle of the street right next to his pickup truck. His pants were down making it even absurd. Responding officers, allegedly, mocked him until they realized who he was. The incident was recorded on April 22, however, the video made it to the internet only now.
Brian Pesce, the Bordentown Township Police Chief, was found on the floor in nearby Hamilton after a 911 call reported that a 'drunk' driver was "weaving all over the place". The caller warned the drunken man that "he’s gonna kill somebody."
The female 911 caller called back another time to inform that the truck driver had stopped and he was "on the ground in the middle of the road … He’s so obliviated." The footage shows how the police chief sprawled out on the ground behind the truck late on April 22. From the group of responding officers, one let out a chuckle and said, "Keys in the middle of the road; cellphone in the middle of the road."
The same officer, who noticed a wet patch on the ground said with disgust, "[He] p—ed on his tire and then took a spill." The drunken police chief claims he is 35 years old, though in reality, he is 11 years older, 46. He mumbled, "What’s the problem?" One of the responding officers said, "You’re sleeping in the middle of the road." while another said, "Your pants are down."
A cop asked if the chief was diabetic to which Pesce said, "Not at all- Probably the wrong answer.”
After the short communications, one of the responding officers searched the chief's vehicle and found his police badge. He then remarked, "Ohh". This is when both officers switched off their cameras and they later turned them back on. Only this time, their tones were different and they addressed the drunken man as 'chief'.
Pesce suffered a wound on his head and he was led into an ambulance. He sounded confused as he said, "I drove? … I wasn’t driving anywhere."
Pesce, who had been chief since 2018, was put on restricted duty in the department. He was charged with five traffic offenses, including drunken driving, reckless and careless driving, failing to report an accident, and leaving the scene involving property damage, the report said. According to the NJ Post, Pesce had got the top job after initiating an internal affairs action against his then-boss, Frank Nucera, who is scheduled to start serving a 28-month prison sentence this week on federal hate crime charges.
