RAMAPO, N.Y. -- A Suffern man who fell asleep drunk on the side of the road, threw a beer bottle out the window when a police officer walked up to his vehicle on Saturday, according to Ramapo Police.
Pierre Alexandre, 54, was stopped on the side of Hemion Road in the Village of Montebello when a Ramapo Police Officer approached his vehicle, said Det. Lt. Mark Emma.
