The driver, after being observed by police going through a stop sign, was taken to headquarters and his car was towed. He consented to a breathalyzer test which resulted in a positive reading over the legal drinking limit.
The defendant, 33, of New City, was charged with:
- driving while intoxicated,
- operating with a blood alcohol count exceeding .08 percent, first offense,
- failure to stop at stop sign,
- and unsafe lane change.
