ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. - A Rockland County man with nearly a dozen suspensions on his license was busted by Orangetown police after allegedly drinking and driving on Route 59 over the weekend.
Officers from the Orangetown Police Department stopped 38-year-old Nyack resident Reuden Chase at approximately 9:20 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 22 after he committed several traffic violations.
During the subsequent stop, officers determined that Chase was operating the vehicle under the influence of alcohol, and further investigation determined that he was driving with a license that had been suspended nine times throughout the state.
Chase was arrested and taken transported to Orangetown Police Headquarters, where he refused to take a breathalyzer test. He was arrested and charged with a felony count of unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and driving while intoxicated. He was arraigned and released on his own recognizance. Chase is due back in the Nyack Justice Court next month to answer the charges.
