A New Jersey teenager has been arrested after “allegedly” driving drunk, punching his sister, and nearly killing his twin brother. The family that flays together stays together.
The siblings of a West Caldwell 18-year-old charged in a drunken driving crash that seriously injured his twin brother begged him not to get behind the wheel as he tried to leave a house party in town.
Anthony Dattoli was “obviously intoxicated” when he made his way to an Audi A4 parked outside a home on Annin Road early on the morning of June 27.
Dattoli punched his sister in the face and then his twin brother jumped on the vehicle’s hood as they tried to stop him from driving.
I’ve seen that one or two times in my career, and it’s never a good idea.
Dattoli pulled away with his brother on the hood and drove almost three blocks before losing control of the car and slamming into a tree near the corner of Central Avenue and Taylor Drive at about 1:20 a.m.
Dattoli’s brother will have to have one of his legs amputated. Naturally, the idiot driver came away without a scratch. Here’s hoping he spends the bulk of his life in prison.
