Police: Parent Was Drunk When He Tried to Pick Up Child at Middle School

Chatham Township resident charged with DWI, reckless driving and failure to stop.

A Chatham Township dad was drunk when he tried to pick up his child Tuesday afternoon from the middle school, borough police said.

Paul Mayes, 54, was charged with DWI, reckless driving and failure to stop.

According to police, officers responded to Chatham Middle School at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday when the principal reported a parent was trying to pick up his child and appeared to be intoxicated.

An officer spotted the parent driving out of the parking lot and then turned right onto Main Street. The parent made a left on Division Avenue and then failed to stop at the stop sign at the intersection of Division Avenue and Kings Road, police said Thursday.

Mayes was stopped on Woodland Avenue, exhibited signs of intoxication and performed some field sobriety tests, police said. There was no one else in the car with Mayes at the time of the stop, police said.

Mayes was arrested, transported to police headquarters, processed and released to a friend.

Here's his song again btw: Hey Rose, I wrote a song for you. It's sung to the tune of Eleanor Rigby. I hope you like it. Ah, look at all the lonely losers, Ah, look at all the lonely losers. Rose McHugh, sits in a Dunkin Donuts counting the sprinkles atop her donuts, Did any fall? What should she eat first, vanilla, chocolate or strawberry? The icing rots her brain, what does she care. Rose is a lonely loser, where did she come from? Rose McHugh, sits at the keyboard, waiting for an article to appear so she can add her two cents. Waits for a signal, then typing the words that no one will read. Oh what insanity. Rose is a lonely loser. Rose McHugh is a big zero, no accomplishments, no accolades. Crowned the Town idiot by Peter/Colleen. Impressed with herself, she must strike out. Oh, Nonnenmacher you#$%#$*&. Rose is a lonely loser... Rose McHugh, crazy as hell, how else would she fill her empty day? She's compelled to comment, her poison unleashed, you cant be a wizard, I've seen them, I know. Rose lives in a bad dream. Look at her typing. Chatting away, day and night when no one is there, What does she care? Rose is a lonely loser, where did she come from? Rose McHugh, searching the Patch in the moon's dim light hoping to contribute some nitwit nonsense. How does she dare? Nobody cares. Same verse. Rose McHugh, munching on chips as she waits for her comment to appear. Insanely wiping the crumbs off the keypad as she exists for the night. No wizards have come on this very night. She would know. Time well served, what does she care. You know the verse. Rose McHugh, fills her day with inane comments she's compelled to share. Casting aspersions all through the day. Blinded by rage, she cant see, she's clogging up Patch articles with her idiocy. So glad she wrote, she's entertained. It could be worse, Oh that damn chipmunk. Disguised as a chipmunk, that wizard he dances, leaving behind sharp pointed sticks. Rose McHugh, picks up the sticks in her yard where that chipmunk has been. Rests on a beam. Hides in wait for that chipmunk, bringing a keyboard she keeps in her home by the door. Who is it for? All the crazy people, where do they all come from? Rose McHugh, lifting the keyboard, ready to lash out. Like a cartoon character, she shouts out, "Where is that Chipmunk who brings all of the sticks? These two don't mix. Chased by a bee, she will not let up. I'll get that wizard, you'll see. Her keyboard in hand, she's ready to twirl, Oh no she's stung by that bee. Ah, look at all the stupid people. Rose McHugh, sits in a park feeding birds that shat on her head, she's a shithead. Mistakes it for icing, now she's sick in bed. Spending the the day, chatting away. Rose John this is so weird i can't even begin

Weird? Wait till you see the song parody about you.

I am a shocked at Mr. Nonnemacher's posts to this story. This man, A MEMBER of the CHATHAM BOARD of EDUCATION, has referred to others posting (including me) as a "moron" a "jackass" a "asshole" and a "shithead". Clearly has an anger issue. Judging by the "song" he penned and posted 11:30 Thursday night he appears to have other issues as well. Ms. Webber???

Ms McHugh, instead of ignoring your comments, I responded to them. If I offended you I am truly sorry. If I have offended anyone else during this ugly thread, I apologize to you as well. If you run into me, please feel free to stop me and I will apologize to you in person. Have a great day, good health to all and as Ringo Starr says repeatedly, "peace and love".
