DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. – A 69-year-old Yonkers man was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol after he sideswiped a parked car on Livingston Street about 7:30 p.m. Monday, June 17, police said.
Police said Brian Conlon had left the Half Moon restaurant when he hit the parked car, damaging the passenger side of his 2006 BMW and the driver's side of the parked 2009 Plymouth PT Cruiser. Conlon's car ended up off the street, into a bush and against a tree, police said.
Police said a vehicle service roadside assistance system in Conlon’s car reported the accident. The responding officers said they smelled alcohol on Conlon's breath and his speech was slurred and he had glassy and bloodshot eyes. He refused field sobriety tests and a Breathalyzer, police said.
Conlon was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, a class A misdemeanor; and refusal to submit to a sobriety test and refusal to submit to a chemical test, both violations. He was released on his own recognizance around 10 p.m. and his car was impounded.
