Carota was stopped for a traffic infraction as he traveled down State Route 197 in the town of Argyle Saturday night. When the Trooper spoke with him, they could smell alcohol on his breath and observed signs of impairment. The Trooper attempted to administer the roadside sobriety tests, but Carota refused to complete them. A DMV check also determined that he was operating on a revoked driver’s license.

Carota was taken into custody and transported to SP Greenwich where he provided a breath sample of .10% B.A.C. He was processed and issued an appearance ticket for Argyle Town Court on October 12, 2021.
