Dobbs Ferry Police Arrest and Charge Two with DWI

DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. – Dobbs Ferry police arrested and charged two drivers with DWIs in separate incidents in the village last week.

Madlyn Walton, a 69-year-old Irvington resident was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated just before 10 p.m. on Feb. 29 according to police.  Police said Walton was pulled over after hitting a chain link fence, a utility pole, a parked 2011 Acura and then crashing into a wooden fence on Palisade St.  Police said she failed a field sobriety test and refused a chemical test.  Walton was issued three summonses, including for refusal to submit to a chemical prescreening device, leaving the scene of an auto accident and operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.  She was later released on her own recognizance and is due to appear in court later this month.

Roberto Hernandez-Castro, a 30-year-old Yonkers resident, was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated just before 4 a.m. on March 3 according to police.  Police said Hernandez-Castro was pulled over heading south on Broadway for driving 55 mph in a 30 mph zone.  He then refused to submit to a chemical test and failed field sobriety tests.  Police said he was issued five tickets, for driving without a license, refusing a prescreening device, having an open container in the car and speeding in addition to the DWI.  Bail was set at $250, which a friend posted. Hernandez-Castro is due to appear in court at a later date.
