When a resident of Syracuse is charged for participating in criminal activity, the charges often arise from another less serious situation such as a routine traffic violation or a car accident. One type of criminal charge that this occurs with relative frequency is driving while intoxicated.
A 27-year-old man was recently detained by authorities after they responded to a call about a motor vehicle accident. The accident happened shortly after midnight on a Friday night. According to police, the man was deemed intoxicated after he failed to stop at a stop sign and hit a tree.
