NJ man admits to 15th DWI

A New Jersey man whose driver's license has been suspended 78 times has pleaded guilty to his 15th drunken-driving offense. Shaun Campbell told a judge in Morris County he was drunk on beer when he crashed his SUV head-on into a pickup carrying a man and his 4-year-old daughter in April. They were not seriously injured.

The 40-year-old East Rutherford resident admitted his blood-alcohol level was .288 percent, or more than triple the state's .08 percent level.

Authorities say Campbell's license has been suspended 78 times over 22 years. He still faces drunken-driving charges in Pequannock and Wayne.

Prosecutors are seeking a maximum prison term of more than two years when Campbell is sentenced in August. He'll also lose his driver's license for at least another 10 years.
