Sparta Men Accused of Creating Black Ice as DWI Crash Cover-Up Plead Not Guilty

Sparta Men Accused of Creating Black Ice as DWI Crash Cover-Up Plead Not Guilty

People quotes Sparta Police Department Sgt. John Lamon as saying that in his 21 years on the force “I've never seen anything like this.” Lamon was referring to the fact that two young Sparta men allegedly tried to cover up DWI crash evidence by pouring water on the roadway to create black ice, as Tara Fowler writes for People.

Brian Byers, 20, pleaded not guilty in Sparta Municipal Court on Thursday to driving while intoxicated, careless driving, failure to stop at a stop sign, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to report an accident, and disorderly conduct (for creating a dangerous condition by intentionally icing an intersection), as Joe Carlson reports for the New Jersey Herald.

Alexander Zambenedetti, 20, pleaded not guilty to driving while intoxicated, careless driving, and failure to wear a seat belt, Carlson writes. Both men were told that by entering not guilty pleas, they could each be subject to fines, loss of their driver’s license, and jail time if they are found guilty, Carlson writes.
