Didja ever watch “World’s Dumbest” on truTV? Well we have a couple of candidates this week. A father-son duo. We’d give the trophy to daddy.
At 12:04 a.m. Friday, the Nutley PD received a report of an erratic driver hitting the curbs at the Burger King on Franklin Ave.
When officers arrived, they found a 23-year-old Bernardsville man, Timothy Moran Jr., behind the wheel of a 2001 Chevy SUV. In the vehicle, police said, were his father, Timothy Sr., 48, of Flemington, and several packages of illegal fireworks, which the son reportedly admitted were his.
According to Det. Anthony Montanari, it was also found that Timothy Jr.’s driver’s license was suspended and that he was wanted on a criminal warrant out of Clark. The SUV, police said, was unregistered and uninsured.
The son was taken into custody and transported to police headquarters, where his vehicle was impounded and he was issued summonses and where his father bailed him out, posting the required $250.
