Cops: Man Drove in Southeast with Blood-Alcohol Level Twice the Legal Limit

He was sent to the Putnam County Correctional Faciliy on $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond bail.

A 29-year-old Port Chester man is facing three felony charges after an arrest on westbound Interstate 84 in Southeast, officials say.

At about 6:30 a.m. Sunday, troopers from the East Fishkill barracks stopped and inquired when they saw a 2000 Toyota Tundra stopped on the side of the highway with its hazard lights flashing.

The driver, Nestor G. Tusa-Guayllasaca, 29, was allegedly intoxicated. Police say his blood-alochol level was 0.18 percent. The legal limit is 0.08.

Tusa-Guayllasaca, who was reportedly convicted of drunken driving in the last 10 years, is facing several felony charges: aggravated driving while intoxicated, driving while intoxicated and first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation. He was sent to the Putnam County Correctional Faciliy on $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond bail, pending a future appearance in Southeast Justice Court.
