Man charged with DWI

An Adams Street man was arrested Friday for operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol at more than three times the legal limit.

Ross Mason, 49, was charged with driving while intoxicated and aggravated driving while intoxicated, both misdemeanors.

Mason was stopped by police and during the ensuing interview, they began to suspect he had been drinking. Mason failed subsequent field sobriety tests and was found to have a blood alcohol content of .28 percent, more than three times the legal limit of .08 percent.

Mason was processed and released to appear in Whitehall Village Court at a later date.

The investigation and arrest were handled by Whitehall Patrolman Jeffrey Grenier.
