A New Hampshire man drove to the loading dock gate at the Montgomery County Jail Tuesday and asked permission to enter Canada.
Deputies allege William F. Edmunds, 32, of Hudson, N.H., drove drunk from his hometown about 229 miles away and parked outside the jail’s loading dock gate where a sign directs visitors to wait for an officer.
When deputies arrived, police allege Edmunds told them he wanted to cross the border into Canada, believing he was at a border checkpoint near Niagara Falls, according to a release.
Edmunds refused field sobriety tests and then was then charged with felony-DWI because of a past conviction in New Hampshire in addition to a count of first degree aggravated unlicensed operation.
Edmunds was arraigned in Glen Town Court and sent back to the Montgomery County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.
