GLOVERSVILLE - A Gloversville man drove drunk twice in the span of 48 hours earlier this month, police said Wednesday.

One of the incidents involved a crash into a utility pole, police said. No injuries were reported.

Daniel L. Degnan, 28, of 21 Maple Ave., faces misdemeanor driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed operation counts in both incidents, police said.

The first case happened just before 4 p.m. May 9, police said. Officers responded to West Eleventh Avenue for a report of a man who appeared to be intoxicated, police said.

They arrived and found Degnan. They also determined he had operated a vehicle on West Eleventh, administered field sobriety tests that he failed and charged him, police said.

He was issued tickets and released to appear in court later.

Police then encountered Degnan again, just after 2 p.m. May 11 on Bleecker Street, police said. 

Police responded then for a report of a car that had hit a telephone pole and the driver was attempting to flee, police said.

Offices then found Degnan operating the vehicle and they detected an odor of alcohol. They again administered field sobriety tests, which Degnan again failed, police said.

Degnan was charged in that case, arraigned and ordered held, police said.
