New York State Police charged a Wappinger man with drunk driving on Saturday night while he was riding an all-terrain vehicle. Daniel Alexander was allegedly riding on property without permission and police arrived on the scene around 9:00 pm. Alexander fled, driving onto a nearby roadway. He was stopped a short distance away and police checked for intoxication. Alexander’s blood alcohol content registered .08%, right at the legal limit.
Alexander, 46, has a prior conviction within ten years for driving while intoxicated in New York, so the current charge was filed as a felony. He was also charged with failure to wear a helmet, operating on private property without permission, operating an unlicensed ATV and operating an ATV on a public roadway. Alexander was issued traffic tickets and ordered to appear in municipal court on July 20.
