Could police crackdown mean DWI fireworks this holiday?

America's War of Independence won this nation's freedom from the king of England. We celebrate the birth of our nation this weekend and police are promising to be out in force. Their goal will be to keep the roads free of suspected drunk drivers. That suggests that red, white and blue lights will be visible across the Hudson Valley and they won't all be from fireworks.

New York woman charged with DWI twice on New Year's Day

Less than an hour and a half after being stopped and charged with DWI on New Year's Day, a Poughkeepsie woman was stopped a second time for the same offense. After the second contact, police took the woman into custody on additional DWI charges. A female passenger in her car was also taken into custody and charged with resisting arrest and related offenses. Both women were detained in the Ulster County Jail in lieu of bail. Police say the first incident happened shortly after 3 a.m. on Jan. 1 when they spotted the 20-year-old woman driving the wrong direction on southbound U.S. Highway 9 West. The woman was charged with misdemeanor drunk driving and related traffic offenses after she was found to have a blood alcohol content of more than 0.08 percent. Police released the woman into the custody of a responsible third party following the first stop.
