YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Weehawken man caught making an illegal turn into the Lincoln Tunnel with his headlights off had a blood-alcohol level more than three times over the legal limit, Port Authority police said this morning.

Police stopped Thomas Arnold before his 2003 Audi made it to the tube from Park Avenue around 1:30 Saturday morning, the authority’s Joseph Pentangelo said.

“His face was flushed and his eyes were watery and bloodshot,” he said.

Subsequent testing put his BAC at .26%, Pentangelo said.

A computer check found a warrant out of North Bergen, he added.

Arnold, 39, was charged with DWI in a school zone, reckless driving and making an illegal turn.
