CLIFTON PARK — A Troy man ordered to a drunk driving victim-impact panel drove to the panel drunk this week, state police said.
Jason Montarello, 43, of Troy, was charged with driving while intoxicated after he arrived at the Tuesday evening after police determined he had driven there intoxicated.
DWI victim impact panels allow offenders to hear directly from DWI victims and victims families about the real consequences of drunk driving. Previous offenders also speak about the consequences to offenders, according to the Saratoga County program.
Montarello was released to return to court later.
