RANDOLPH, NJ (Daily Record) -- A New Jersey man is accused of trying to take his driver's license road test while drunk.

Officer Daniel Novoa was dispatched to the Motor Vehicle Commission office on Canfield Avenue on Dec. 11 after a test instructor detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from 53-year-old Stephen Goss, police said.

Goss had allegedly driven his vehicle from Hackettstown to the office and when the instructor thought she smelled alcohol on his breath, she contacted her supervisor, who had another employee contact police.

Novoa arrived at the scene and found Goss behind the wheel with the engine running, waiting to take the test, police said.

He was not allowed to take the test, but was asked to perform the standardized field sobriety test before he was charged with driving while intoxicated and reckless driving, police said.
