A 63-year-old Penn Yan man was charged with driving while intoxicated after Yates County Sheriff’s Deputies received a report of a possible sick/intoxicated driver.
A vehicle matching the description was found at a residence on Boston Road in the town of Torrey. Thomas Putzig was exiting the car upon deputies arrival. Putzig was unsteady on his feet and a strong odor of alcohol was detected coming from him. Field sobriety tests were administered and Putzig was arrested and transported to Yates County Jail for testing, which he refused.
Putzig was ordered to appear in Torrey Town Court at a later date.
