Former Mayor Cappiello DWI
In “former mayor” news here on H411, we have the following little tidbit from Wednesday night. Steve Cappiello, Hoboken Mayor from 1973 to 1985, was arrested for DWI near Fourth St. & Park Ave. He unfortunately hit a car being driven an undercover detective for the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office! (What was HE doing here exactly?)
Insignificant damage to the vehicles, but the detective pulled Cappiello over a few blocks later and noticed the smell of alcohol on his breath. They took him down to police headquarters for a breathalizer test. However, before they could administer the test, Cappiello complained about chest pains and was taken to HUMC hospital. Cop out.
Mayor Roberts issued a statement about how he was “happy” no one got hurt, and his “thoughts” were with the former Mayor. Back in the day, I remember people being reprimanded for doing things that could kill other people. Now they’re just happy? Sheesh!
