A Port Chester police officer pulled over a man driving a blue Toyota at 11:40 p.m. on Saturday, Mar. 9, after he allegedly drove through a solid red light on North Main Street.
According to the police report, the officers realized the 50 S. Main St. resident smelled like alcohol and had glassy, bloodshot eyes as he struggled to find his vehicle paperwork. He continued to allegedly admit to drinking one beer and a shot of whisky at a White Plains restaurant earlier that night but claimed that was at least six hours prior.
The 31-year-old continued to allegedly fail several onsite sobriety tests. According to the police report, at the police station his blood alcohol content was revealed at .17 percent, more than twice the legal limit of .08.
Ricardo Marin was charged with driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor, and passing a red traffic light, a violation.
