Owner Denies Driving in Taconic DWI Crash: Police
He refused a breath test after investigators concluded the person he named had not been the driver.
Police said the Yorktown Heights resident falsely reported that another person had driven his Mercedes Benz and left the scene of the accident. Also, he completed an accident report and led Troopers to investigate the accusations, giving Troopers the supposed driver's name, address, and telephone number.
After Troopers investigated the allegations and spoke with the accused driver, it was then confirmed that the Mercedes Benz owner was in fact the driver.
He refused to provide a breath sample and was issued appearance tickets on the misdemeanor charges for Town of Yorktown Court, returnable on April 10.
