Major James M. Hall
Troop A Commander
Freedom man arrested for DWI
On February 9, 2020, SP Machias Troopers arrested Richard E. Hoffman, 58, of Freedom, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.
During a traffic stop on California Hill Road in the town of Freedom, Troopers determined Hoffman had been operating a vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. He failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Hoffman was then arrested and transported to SP Machias, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.14% BAC.
Hoffman was issued appearance tickets for Freedom Town Court, where he is due to appear later this month.
