SOUTHEAST, N.Y. – An Oswego, N.Y., man faces charges of driving while intoxicated after he was arrested by state police on Route 22 in Southeast, authorities said.

Alan C. Wheeler, 30, was also charged with failing to operate a motor vehicle equipped with an interlock device, police said.

Troopers were dispatched Sunday, Jan. 31, to assist a disabled motorist on Route 22. An investigation revealed, police said, that the driver, Wheeler, was intoxicated.

He was charged with felony DWI when a criminal history revealed a previous DWI-related conviction from 2013, police said.

Wheeler was arraigned in the Town of Kent Justice Court and held at the Putnam County Jail on $500 cash bail, police said.

He is scheduled to appear in Southeast Town Court on Tuesday, Feb. 9.
