ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. - A routine traffic stop on Church Street in Nyack led to the arrest of a man for allegedly driving while intoxicated over the weekend.
Patrol officers with the Orangetown Police Department conducted a traffic stop shortly before 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 8, when 26-year-old Methuen, Mass. resident Christopher Carmain was stopped for a traffic violation.
According to police, during the subsequent stop, while speaking with Carmain, officers smelled alcohol on his breath and he failed several Standardized Field Sobriety Tests at the scene. He proceeded to fail a breathalyzer test. His blood alcohol content at the time of the incident was not immediately available.
Carmain was arrested on a charge of driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor. He was processed on the charge and has since been released. He is due back in Nyack Justice Court next month to answer the charge.
