State police say a Watervliet teen was drunk early this morning when he crashed his car in a Halfmoon apartment complex with another teen in the car.
Troopers said Ryan Connelly, 18, was driving in the Twin Lakes Apartments complex about 1 a.m. when he crashed into a tree on a traffic island. There was a 15-year-old youth in the car with him when the crash occurred, so he was charged with driving while intoxicated and an additional felony DWI charge under Leandra's Law.
The passenger sustained a knee injury in the crash, troopers said.
Connelly was arraigned in Halfmoon Town Court and sent to the Saratoga County jail on bail.
