Man left vehicle blocking road: police

MOHAWK -A Palatine Bridge man was charged by state police Sunday with driving while intoxicated after an incident in which he crashed his vehicle and left it to block traffic.

Troopers said they arrested Stephen C. Moshier, 23, after they tracked him down at a friend’s house on the same road he crashed his vehicle. He crashed his 1997 Pontiac Sunfire and abandoned it in the westbound lane blocking Stone Arabia Road early Sunday morning. Troopers said that during an interview, Moshier admitted to consuming seven to eight beers and three shots of liquor during a graduation party earlier.

Troopers said he drove into a ditch and friends helped him out, only to crash his car later on Stone Arabia Road and leave it there. Troopers said Moshier’s blood-alcohol content was 0.11 percent.

He was scheduled for arraignment July 23 in Town Court.
