A New Jersey man was charged with drunken driving Saturday after he was found slumped over the steering wheel of a car stopped in a busy Route 303 intersection, according to Orangetown Police.
Police said numerous motorists called them at around 6:22 p.m. on Saturday to alert them to a car stopped at the intersection with Kings Highway in Tappan. When town officers went to investigate, police said they found Andrew S. Walsh, 37, of 121 Myer St., Hackensack, NJ, slumped over in a 2012 Subaru in the middle of the intersection.
Police said Walsh appeared intoxicated and then failed field sobriety checks. He was arrested, taken to Orangetown Police Headquarters in Orangeburg and failed a chemical breath test for alcohol, according to police.
Walsh was being held Saturday night pending arraignment in Orangetown Town Court. He faces a hearing on April 10.
