FAIR LAWN, N.J. -- A drunken Fairview motorist threatened to kill Fair Lawn police and their families, authorities said Thursday.

An off-duty New Jersey State Police trooper alerted police to the erratically driven car, Sgt. Brian Metzler said.

Responding Officers Nicholas Snyder, Michael Van Ness, Thomas Spear and Anthony Ferreira responded stopped 26-year-old Ali Sawaed on Arcadia Road at Whitehall Street, Metzler said.

Sawaed "took a fighting stance when instructed to perform roadside sobriety tests, then threatened to kill officers, their families and ‘Americans'," the sergeant said.

Sawaed was charged with making terroristic threats, disorderly conduct, DWI, refusing to submit to breath samples, operating an unregistered vehicle, reckless driving and having an open alcohol container in a motor vehicle.

He was then released to a responsible adult under New Jersey's 2017 Bail Reform & Speedy Trial Act.
