Sheriff: Brewster Man with Revoked License Drove Drunk

A 21-year-old Brewster man is facing misdemeanor and felony charges following a recent arrest in the Village, officials say.

Deputy Thomas Lee of the Putnam County Sheriff's Office arrested Victor M. Mazariegos at about 3:30 a.m. Monday, according to a statement released this week.  

Lee stopped Mazariegos on Route 6 in Brewster after the defendant committed a traffic violation, police said. The deputy found the defendant to be intoxicated, and later discovered his license had been revoked, the release states.

The Sheriff's Office generally does not release blood-alcohol levels, as they may be considered evidentiary.

Mazariegos is facing a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated and a felony charge of aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the first degree. He was held at the Putnam County Correctional Facility pending arraignment.

Authorities say the maximum sentence for the felony charge is up to four years behind bars and a fine of up to $5,000.00.
