A Sleepy Hollow man is having a bad run with DWI charges lately, police report.
Chief Gregory Camp confirmed that the man his officers arrested on a DWI charge on August 14 on Valley Street is the same man that got into trouble again, in a much more dramatic way, in a chase that ended in Hastings-on-Hudson on August 21.
Camp said the man apparently had a hearing at the DMV on August 21, but by night he had racked up a second DWI charge.
According to LoHud.com, Stanley R. Martinez, 24, allegedly fled the scene of a car accident on the Saw Mill Parkway in Tuckahoe just before 8 p.m. that night.
Pursuit of his car by County Police led to Hastings where an officer was finally able to stop him on the Saw Mill.
Martinez then allegedly tossed drugs out of his car, namely a bag of pot laced with PCP, and struggled with the officer who decided to use a stun gun to subdue him.
According to Hastings Police, Westchester County officers requested an ambulance at the scene after Martinez was tasered.
Lohud reports that Westchester County Police charged Martinez with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth, a felony; DWI; Resisting arrest and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
Martinez was held at Westchester County Jail without bail pending today's scheduled court appearance.
