North Jersey cop reportedly pleads guilty to drunken driving

PEQUANNOCK -- A Montvale police officer admitted he was drunk when he was found asleep behind the wheel of his luxury car last year in Morris County, according to a report.

Herminio Amado's license was suspended for seven months but he can continue driving because his lawyer appealed a pretrial ruling which permitted an alcohol influence report to be entered as evidence, NorthJersey.com said. That appeal remains pending, the report said.

Pequannock police found Amado dozing in a black BMW on the side of Route 23 south in June, the prosecutor said. His blood alcohol content was .18 percent, more than twice the legal limit.

Although Adado pleaded guilty to drunken driving on Monday, his attorney previously said too little time elapsed between the breath tests given to his client.

Amado, who has been a cop since 2012 is the president of the Montvale chapter of the Policeman's Benevolent Association. He made $88,172 last year, according to public records.
