As if having your team lose to the lowly Buffalo Bills isn't enough, one New York Jets fan's day got even worse on Sunday after he rear-ended a car, failed a sobriety test and had an open bottle of whiskey and suspected marijuana in his car, police said.
His reason for his brush with the law was simple.
"I drank too much because the Jets suck," Christopher Greyshock, 57, of West Milford, told police during his sobriety test, according to a release from the Wayne Police.
Officers there were called to the corner of Alps Road and Route 23 at 5:15 p.m., which was about an hour and a half after the Jets game ended, for a report of a car accident with injuries and found first aid squad members helping an injured woman and a man lying on the grass.
Greyshock then "staggered" and "swayed" over to the officers and told them that he had rear-ended a car that was stopped in traffic, the release said.
Police said they could smell alcohol on his breath and that there were "stains of liquid" on his blue jeans. It was then that police performed the sobriety test an then found that his blood alcohol level was over the legal limit at .13 percent.
Officers then searched his car and found a three-quarters full bottle of Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whiskey on his passenger seat, the burnt remnants of a joint on the center console, rolling papers on the passenger side floor and a bag which contained marijuana, authorities said.
Greyshock's car was impounded and he was charged with assault by auto because the driver he hit was injured, DWI, reckless driving and drug possession, police said.
he was turned over to a "responsible adult," the release stated.

Not guilty! Case closed!
Bet the cops had a good laugh as they hauled him in.
They should have let this man go, and arrested the Jets for abuse.
Aww, poor guy. But that’s what he gets for being a Jets fan! j/k... We’ve all been there.
He should sue the NFL...
well, he has a point.
Just think what would have happen if he was a Packer fan after Sunday’s game with the Seahawks. Ugly!!
If that’s the reason, the guy probably hasn’t been sober in my lifetime.

Fat drunk and a Jets fan is no way to go through life.
Er, Joe Namath’s fault.
There was a time when those driving
under the influence had their remaining
alcohol poured on the ground, their car
parked and locked, and the offender
driven home in a police cruiser.
He does have a point, after all he is a Jets fan to begin with.
I drink too much because the Democrats suck!!
Being a Lions fan I should be shooting heroin every day.
