In a recent scan of news related to DWI charges around our part of New York, we read that a Newburgh man, 22 years old, was recently charged with driving while intoxicated a few miles north, by Lloyd town police.
He was pulled over this past Saturday on U.S. Route 9W in Highland.
The following day, a Plattekill man, 25, was also charged with DWI by police in Lloyd after a stop on the same highway. He, too, will have to appear in Lloyd Town Court on the charge.
In fact, in the news report we read, a third man, this one 38 years old and from Accord, was likewise charged with the same violation on the same highway and by the same police department. Like the other two, he will also appear in Lloyd Town Court.
However, there are also reports of a Bronx man who was charged with felony driving while intoxicated nearby. Unlike the other three, he was arrested on Route 17 near exit 107. That's where he reportedly crashed his vehicle, law enforcement officials said.
The man, 32, was found by officers near his car and appeared to them to be intoxicated, they reported.
His blood alcohol level was tested at a nearby New York State Police barracks and measured at 0.11 percent, which is above the 0.08 percent legal threshold.
Officers said they also discovered that the man had an outstanding warrant from New York City on a marijuana possession charge.
He was booked into the county jail pending the posting of $25,000 bail.
