MAYFIELD — State police charged both Harold L. Young, 45, and Amanda M. Vannostrand, 35, both of Broadalbin with aggravated driving while intoxicated, a class E felony.
Troopers said shortly after 4 p.m. on Wednesday, they were called to the Budget Inn in Broadalbin for a disturbance. Troopers found that two males had been involved in an altercation after attaching a chain between their two vehicles and playing “tug of war” in the parking lot.
Troopers said one of the drivers, later identified as Young, exhibited signs of intoxication. Young was administered the standardized field sobriety tests, which he failed. Young provided a breath sample showing his blood alcohol content at .30 percent, more than three times the legal limit of .08 percent.
While Young was being processed at the Mayfield barracks, troopers said they observed Vannostrand drive her vehicle into the parking lot of the barracks to pick up Young after his arrest.
Troopers said when they spoke with Vannostrand, she exhibited signs of intoxication. She was administered the standardized field sobriety tests, which she failed, and was taken into custody. Vannostrand provided a breath sample which showed a blood alcohol content of .22 percent.
Young was issued a ticket to appear in Broadalbin Town Court on Nov. 7 at 4 p.m.
Vannostrand was given a ticket for Town Court on Nov. 12 at 3 p.m.
