Greene County resident Conor Moan, age 25, of Greenville, was arrested for felony DWI and other charges following a near-crash that occurred early Sunday, March 5, on the Thruway in Schenectady County, in the town of Rotterdam.
Troopers first spotted Moan at around 2 a.m. as he drove a Subaru Legacy westbound in the eastbound lane on I-90 near exit 26, according to State Police. They avoided a head-on crash by veering onto the right shoulder.
Moan’s vehicle came to a stop in the center median. When troopers approached his car he got out and began running on foot, leaving his passenger behind, police said. He was arrested a short time later.
A subsequent investigation found that Moan had a revoked non-driver ID at the time, and was intoxicated. He later refused to provide a breath sample.
According to troopers, Moan has a previous DWI conviction within the past 10 years. He faces the following charges:
- Driving while intoxicated (felony)
- Aggravated unlicensed operation - first degree (felony)
- Reckless endangerment - second degree (misdemeanor)
- Resisting Arrest (misdemeanor)
- Obstructing governmental administration - second degree (misdemeanor)
- Reckless driving (misdemeanor)
Moan was released from custody and turned over to a sober third party. He was issued appearance tickets to the Town of Rotterdam Court on Thursday, March 30.
