A Sharon Springs man was charged with felony driving while intoxicated after state police stopped him at midday Wednesday, allegedly with a blood-alcohol content nearly four times the legal threshold for intoxication.

It wasn’t yet 1 p.m. when Michael Mackey, 36, was pulled over on Route 10 in the town of Sharon for failing to signal a turn onto Green Road, troopers said. He was found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.30 percent; the legal limit is 0.08 percent.

The DWI charge was a felony because Mackey had been convicted of DWI within the last 10 years, police said.

Mackey was arraigned and sent to the Schoharie County jail with bail set at $1,000. He is due to return to Sharon Town Court at a later date.
