LAKE GEORGE - A man driving with a blood alcohol content more than three times the legal limit struck a Lake George motel Friday, state police said.

No injuries were reported, but bystanders help direct troopers to the vehicle and the driver, state police said.

The incident happened just after 7 p.m. Friday at the Villager Motel in Lake George, state police said.

Troopers responded there for a report of an erratic driver. They arrived to bystanders flagging them down. Officers soon observed one of the motel's cottages had been damaged by a vehicle. Troopers did not describe the damage further.

Troopers then located the driver, identified as James McMahon, 49, of Lake George, in one of the motel rooms, state police said.

McMahon failed field sobriety tests and his blood alcohol content tested at 0.27 percent, more than three times the legal limit of 0.08.

McMahon was arraigned and released to return to court later.
