A Long Island man has been charged with DWI at almost four times the legal limit after being stopped for failing to drive in his lane.
Bryan Mora, age 25, of Central Islip, was arrested around 2:20 a.m., Wednesday, June 29 on 5th Avenue in Bay Shore.
Sheriff’s deputies spotted Mora failing to maintain his lane of travel by swerving over the white hash marks separating the lanes of travel several times, said Sgt. Paul Spinella, of the Suffolk County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies stopped the vehicle and Mora could not perform standardized field sobriety tests to standard, Spinella said.
Following his arrest, Mora submitted to a chemical breath test resulting in a .30% BAC, almost four times the legal limit, Spinella added.
Mora had a prior conviction for driving while intoxicated on April 26. Due to the prior conviction and the high blood alcohol content, his car was impounded and he was charged with felony aggravated DWI, police said.
He faces a minimum $1,000 fine, up to 4 years in jail, and a minimum 18-month driver’s license revocation., Spinella said,
“As we head into the summer months, our DWI Enforcement Team will be out every night looking for impaired drivers, said Suffolk County Sheriff Errol Toulan. "This particular motorist was so intoxicated he could have killed or seriously injured other drivers or himself.”
