An underage Sussex County man was intoxicated when he crashed his car in Byram Township, authorities said.

Officers in Byram responded to a report of a crash on Sleepy Hollow Road on Monday, July 20, where the driver -- Steven G. Rabe, of Byram -- appeared to be intoxicated, police said.

Rabe was asked to perform a series of field sobriety tests, which police say he did not pass.

He was placed under arrest and taken to a neighboring police department, where he failed two breath tests, authorities said.

Rabe was charged with driving while intoxicated, underage driving while intoxicated, failure to keep right and careless driving.
