Two cops from New Jersey department charged with DUI on same day

Two cops from the same New Jersey police department were busted separately for drunk driving on the same day, according to a new report.

Gloucester Township police officer Steven Lenker, 29, allegedly hit a pedestrian and a parked car while under the influence on July 18, while fellow officer James Ryan, 28, was allegedly three times over the legal booze limit, NJ.com reports.

Lenker — a six-year veteran of the force who earns $95,536 — allegedly hit a pedestrian in Atlantic City around 8 p.m then rammed into a parked car, the outlet reported.

The sloshed lawman allegedly told cops through slurred speech that he couldn’t remember what happened — then failed a field sobriety test, but refused to take a breath test.
