A suspicious, swerving driver in Scarsdale was busted by police with a blood alcohol content nearly double the legal limit.
A Scarsdale police officer conducting traffic enforcement on Post Road shortly before 4 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 4 stopped Yonkers resident Santiago Amigon when he was spotted driving at a low speed, with a turn signal on, swerving across the roadway repeatedly.
During the subsequent stop, Amigon told the officer that he had one beer earlier at his friend’s house in White Plains, though the officer noted that he had the smell of alcohol on his breath and his eyes were glassy and bloodshot. Amigon proceeded to fail multiple Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, at which point Amigon stated he had two beers at approximately 10:30 p.m.
Amigon, 27, proceeded to submit to a breathalyzer, which showed he had a blood alcohol content of .147 percent, nearly double the legal limit. Amigon was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content greater than .08 percent. Amigon was also cited for failing to use the designated lane, an equipment violation and failure to wear a seatbelt. Following his processing, Amigon was released and is scheduled to appear in Scarsdale Village Court on Wednesday, Feb. 6.
