A 39-year-old Penn Yan man has been charged with felony DWI following a traffic stop on Clinton Street in the village.
Police observed Derek Archer allegedly commit multiple traffic violations on multiple streets in Penn Yan Friday. As they conducted a traffic stop, officers could smell an odor of an alcoholic beverage on Archer, and observed other signs of impairment. After refusing several field sobriety tests, Archer was charged with a felony since he has a previous DWI conviction within the last ten years.
He will appear in village court at a later date.
