A 52-year-old Yorktown man faces felony DWI charges after cops say they busted him for drinking and driving Friday evening.
Around 5:25 p.m., officers were dispatched to Underhill Avenue and Rochambeau Drive after receiving a report of an accident involving multiple vehicles, police said.
At the crash scene, officers encountered one of the drivers — Roy Byremo — drunk, with an open container of alcohol in his car and in possession of suspended registration, police said.
No injuries were reported by police following the crash.
Further investigation revealed that Byremo’s BAC was .18 percent — more than two times the legal limit — and that he had a prior DWI conviction within the last 10 years, police said.
He was arrested and taken to police headquarters for processing, police said.
In addition to the two felony DWI charges, Byremo was issued citations for driving with a suspended registration and having an open alcohol container in a car, police said.
Byremo is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 4, police said.
