Lakewood: School Bus Driver Involved in Road Rage Inciden Arrested for DUI

LPD- Earlier this morning just after 8:30 am, Officer Daniel Brooks, who was working an extra duty assignment in the area of Chestnut Street and Vermont Avenue, radioed in to headquarters that he was “out with two vehicles, one of which was a school bus with approximately 20 children on board, involved in a road rage incident”.

Officer Ralph Hatt and Christopher DiBiase were dispatched over to assist. While speaking to the operator of the school bus, 54 year old Angel Colon of Toms River, Officer Hatt detected an odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath. Colon was also described as having slurred speech and bloodshot eyes.

Further investigation resulted in his arrest for Driving Under the Influence. In addition,  Angel Colon was charged with the Endangering of the Children and is currently awaiting transport to the Ocean County Jail.


  1. I see in 2011 someone with the same name had a dwi arrest in a neighboring town. Same Guy? How did he pass a background check??

  2. Why can’t we get the name of the bus company? Does everything have to be a secret

  3. The poop called it a first report but it was already up in the police website

  4. LAKEWOOD, NJ -- The driver of a Jay's Bus Service school bus that had 20 students on board has been charged with driving while intoxicated following a road rage incident in Lakewood Wednesday morning, police said.

    Angel Colon, 54, of Toms River, has been charged with DWI and endangering the welfare of children, said Detective Lt. Gregory Staffordsmith.

    Staffordsmith said Lakewood Police Officer Daniel Brooks radioed headquarters about 8:30 a.m. to report he was out with two vehicles that were involved in a road rage incident in the area of Chestnut Street and Vermont Avenue. One of the vehicles was the school bus driven by Colon, Staffordsmith said.

    Jay's Bus Service in Lakewood contracts with a number of area school districts for specific bus runs. Staffordsmith said it was not known which school district the students were from, or the age of the students.

  5. Arrested for DWI in 2011 looks like the same guy was 47 in 2011
