Dobbs Ferry Resident Charged With DWI

DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. – A Dobbs Ferry resident reported concerns of a neighbor potentially driving under the influence to police after hearing him yelling in the street March 24.

Richard Abrams, a 65-year-old Dobbs Ferry resident, was arrested and charged with DWI just before midnight March 24, according to police. Police said a neighbor allegedly heard Abrams yelling before driving off so he called police and gave a vehicle description. Police said they stopped Abrams on Broadway at Rochambeau and he failed a field sobriety test. Police also said they found a colored glass pipe along with a clear plastic container with an amount of marijuana under the driver’s seat. Abrams was charged with DWI, which is a misdemeanor, unlawful possession of marijuana, which is a violation, and driving with intoxication above 0.08, which is a misdemeanor. He was later on his own recognizance.
