A man was arrested early Sunday morning in Harrison for driving under the influence of alcohol, police said. Mathew Anzivino was pulled over while driving south on North Avenue when police spotted him weaving in and out of lanes.
Police determined that Anzivino's speech was slurred and his eyes were watery and red so they administered a sobriety test. According to reports, Anzivino was unable to maintain his balance throughout the tests and often used his arms to stay on his feet.
After being taken into custody, Harrison police found that Anzivino had a blood alcohol content of .19, according to an administered breath test. His driver's license indicated that he was born in Florida.
He was released to the custody of a friend soon after being taken into custody by 5 a.m.
When he was pulled over, Anzivino's vehicle held two passengers who were released by police and returned to their homes in Harrison.
Also from the blotter:
- A commuter's bicycle was stolen from outside the Harrison train station when a thief cut the lock off its chain. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time.
- Harrison police found assorted graffiti on the playground at Veterans Park off Halstead Avenue. The letter "R" was found spray painted in black paint in one area, and the word "Royalz" was found on a park bench.
