MAYFIELD – A Broadalbin woman drove drunk to the Mayfield state police barracks to pick up a man being processed himself for drunk driving Wednesday, state police said.
The man’s blood alcohol content in the original DWI case was tested at 0.30 – nearly four times the legal limit to drive. The woman’s BAC tested at 0.22 – nearly three times the limit.
The incident began at about 4 p.m. Wednesday at the Budget Inn in Broadalbin, state police said.
Troopers arrived there for a report of a disturbance. They found two men who had been involved in an altercation after attaching a chain between their two vehicles to play “Tug of War” in the parking lot, state police said.
One of the men, identified as Harold L. Young, of Broadalbin showed signs of intoxication and a breath test showed his BAC at 0.30, state police said.
Troopers arrested Young and charged him with felony driving while intoxicated, state police said.
Troopers transported Young to the state police barracks in Mayfield for processing. As he was there, a woman, identified as Amanda M. Vannostrand, 35, of Broadalbin arrived to pick Young up.
Troopers watched as she drove into the parking lot. When she spoke with troopers, they observed signs of intoxication. Her breath sample showed a 0.22 BAC, state police said.
Both Young and Vannostrand were processed and released to appear in court later.
