New York State troopers didn’t have to travel far to process
a man they say was drunk at the wheel Tuesday night.
That's because they found him sleeping in a running car at about 11:45 p.m. outside of the police barracks in Brentwood, according to state police.
Juan Molina, 39, of Bay Shore, who is now facing a DWI charge, was parked in a visitor space with car headlights on and engine running, according to police.
In asking Molina if he needed assistance a trooper detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage. Police say Molina failed sobriety tests, producing a breath sample of .17% BAC.
Molina was processed and released on an appearance ticket. He is due in court on Dec. 23.
