Driving DUI, a man from Hackettstown-area defied authority when he dragged a police officer in his minivan, traveled the opposite way on a highway and hit into two vehicles of the police.

Authorities identified the unruly man as Denny Oh, age25, who is now lodged in the Bergen County jail Wednesday, following the police chase all throughout the boroughs of palisades Park and Ridgefield, New Jersey.

Ridgefield police narrated that the events started at about 6:30 o’clock Tuesday evening after an officer stopped him driving his Odyssey Honda. When the officer told Oh that he was going to be arrested for many outstanding warrants, he hurriedly started his car to get away and dragged the minivan with the officer inside.

The officer was able to free from himself from the van and made it back to his patrol vehicle and started the chase.

Police said that meanwhile, Oh sped through a stop sign in Palisades Park and was about to hit a Ford Expedition that swerved out of the way and only to crash into a building. Witnesses saw that the Expedition had a mother and 4-year-old child inside. It went into a sidewalk and hit a building.

With police vehicles in the chase, Oh allegedly continued and was unmindful entering onto Rte. 46 West. He suddenly U-turned his van and began driving along the wrong side of the highway; at the same time slamming against a police vehicle.

As officers tried to pull him from the van, Oh pressed the gas pedal to accelerate into the direction of other officers, who were out of the vehicles and standing in the road.

Police said that the driver continued driving going the wrong way toward the entrance ramp of Rte. 46 and exited on the highway and entered a borough street. Once more, he turned his vehicle around and slammed into a Ridgefield patrol car.

Oh hurriedly got out of his car and ran away before officers from Ridgefield and Palisades Park were able to arrest him.

Capt. Richard Besser of the Ridgefield police said last Wednesday that even with outstanding warrants, they will still obtain a search warrant for repossession of Oh’s van and already sent his blood sample to the New Jersey State Police lab for testing.

According to Besser, this maybe the reason why Oh committed such actions and why he was so aggressive.

Police have identified Oh as being a resident from Hackettstown but with unavailable address. Besser later learned that Oh was staying with his father in Palisades Park.

He is now facing several charges: (1) aggravated assault of a police officer: (2) eluding & hindering arrest; (3) driving under the influence of narcotics; and (4) driving with a suspended license.

Superior Court judge of New Jersey set his bail in the amount of $250,000.
