A 37-year-old man was charged with driving while intoxicated following a traffic stop in the Hudson Valley.

A deputy saw a vehicle that crossed over the yellow lines and was not maintaining its lane of traffic in Southeast at about 12:50 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 24, the Putnam County Sheriff's Department reported.

The deputy observed signs of alcohol impairment when speaking to the driver, identified as Brandon Tompkins, of Southeast, authorities said.

Authorities said Tompkins was charged with:

  • DWI
  • Refusal to take a breath test
  • Operating a motor vehicle with a suspended registration
