South Camden Man Cleared of Tipsy Charge to Again Permit

A South Camden man, convicted in police court of drunken driving, but acquitted on his appeal to Judge Samuel Shay, will seek reinstatement of his driver’s license which was revoked officially today by Motor Vehicle Commissioner Harold G. Hoffman.

The man, Sylvester Tazcinski, 1477 South Tenth Street, was arrested April 28 by Motorcycle Policemen Edward Shapiro and Thomas Kauffman after Tazcinski’s car is alleged to have sideswiped Kauffman’s motorcycle. They followed the car to Tazcinski’s house where they found it parked. The policemen told Judge Shay on Tuesday they were unable to testify Tazcinski was driving and the judge released the defendant after saying he was convinced Tazcinski was drunk.
