Haverstraw man accused of DUI, attacking trooper

A 25-year-old Haverstraw man is now facing several criminal charges, including DWI, resulting from an incident in which he allegedly attacked a police officer during a traffic stop. His passenger, a 30-year-old from Garnerville, also faces charges in the incident. The drunk driving and other charges leveled against both the driver and passenger make it necessary for each of them to understand their legal rights.

Police say that the man was stopped by a state trooper on Route 303 on Nov. 10 at around 11:40 p.m. During the stop, a struggle began with the arresting officer. The struggle allegedly resulted in the man attacking the trooper. In addition, the man's passenger also allegedly tried to interfere with the arrest. The trooper involved in the alleged altercation sustained no serious injuries.

The driver and his passenger now face criminal charges in the case. The driver faces a felony charge of assault on an officer. Authorities also charged him with misdemeanor counts of driving while intoxicated, resisting arrest, and second-degree obstructing governmental administration. The passenger also faces a charge of obstructing governmental administration and a charge of disorderly conduct.

DWI charges can have a big impact on a person's life. The man in this case faces other charges that are more serious in nature. It is important for him and his passenger to understand their legal rights as they pertain to the charges that have been brought against them.
