OCEAN GATE, N.J. — Fellow officers and residents are mourning the death of a small-town New Jersey police officer who was killed when a suspected drunken driver crashed into his Jeep.

Thirty-two-year-old Ocean Gate Officer Jason Marles was killed early Thursday on the Garden State Parkway. He was headed home to his wife and two children after working a holiday anti-drunken driving detail.

The driver of the BMW that hit Marles’ Jeep was charged with vehicular homicide and drunken driving. He was being held on $250,000 bail.

On Friday, a wooden cross and bouquets of flowers stood at the crash site. More floral arrangements covered a police vehicle parked outside police headquarters in the Ocean County shore town of 2,000 near Toms River.

A candlelight vigil was planned for Friday night.

    RIPB. Prayers to your family and friends.

    Erick P. Uzcategui, 31, of Toms River, was charged with vehicular homicide and driving under the influence and was ordered held at the Ocean County Jail in lieu of $250,000 cash bail,. Uzcategui's four passengers ran and were later captured. They will also be charged. They made no attemp to help the injured officer. The 2010 BMW Series 7 a very safe and expensive (a $80,000 car) may be the reason the five in the car were were unharmed. Very sad. Beware of his jumping bond and heading back to Peru.
    Sorry for two much information. DUI offenses are very close to my heart.
