Cesar Shapiama told police he swerved to avoid an animal in the northbound roadway as he approached Fair Lawn Avenue around 4:20 a.m. Saturday, Sgt. Brian Metzler said.

The 2006 Bentley Flying Spur "rode up the embankment between the highway and the ramp and into a guiderail, then rolled down the embankment onto the shoulder of the highway," he said.

Shapiama, who wasn't injured, failed a roadside sobriety test, was arrested on DWI charges and was released to a "responsible adult," the sergeant said,

The Bentley was towed from the scene, he said.
