Twenty-five-year-old Robert Kusznikow lost his license four times for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Kusznikow's father is president of the Stafford Township Council.
Authorities say Kusznikow struck and killed 76-year-old Michael Grosso Jr. and hit a parked car in the township on Wednesday morning. Authorities are awaiting results of a blood analysis.
Court and motor vehicle records examined by the Asbury Park Press show Kusznikow was 15 when he was issued a summonses in 2002 on charges of driving a mo-ped while under the influence.
Kusznikow's driver's license was suspended for 210 days in 2004 for driving under the influence, again underage.
