Nearly nude driver faces DWI charge

Posted: Updated:

SPARTA, N.J. (AP) - Numerous charges have been filed against a New York woman who was allegedly drunk and wearing only an unzipped jacket when she crashed her car into a stone retaining wall in New Jersey and then drove off.

The crash occurred early Friday in the northwestern New Jersey community of Sparta Township.

A township officer stopped the car just minutes after the crash. The driver, 36-year-old Catherine Giaquinto, of Warwick, allegedly told police she couldn't remember the accident or where she was going.

After noticing some clothes in her car, officers asked Giaquinto to get dressed, which she did after several minutes.

It's not known if Giaquinto has retained a lawyer. A phone number for her could not be located Monday.
