A city man allegedly hiding a handgun parked his vehicle in middle of a one-way street facing the wrong direction early Tuesday morning, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik.
Darrell L. Giles, 30-year-old, was inside a blue Pontiac wagon in middle of College Boulevard, a one-way street, facing the wrong direction at around 4:20 a.m.
Giles allegedly had a handgun between the center console and driver’s seat. Detectives recovered a black Crosman Mark I .22 caliber pellet handgun that was not loaded.
Officer Patrick Holt observed the car facing the wrong direction in the one-way street.
Holt called backup to apprehend the suspect. Authorities charged Giles with driving while intoxicated (DWI), aggravated assault, weapon possession, and imitation firearm possession, authorities said.
Giles had an outstanding $1,078 warrant out of Ridgefield Park, authorities said.
