Schuyler based state police charged a Bergen, N.Y. with DWI after stopping him for driving 108 mph on the New York State Thruway early Wednesday morning.
At approximately 2:25 a.m. on January 10, Troopers Aaron Vaber and Charles Humphreville were patrolling the Thruway in the Town of Schuyler when they observed a 2009 Dodge Ram pickup travelling westbound at 108 mph in a 65 mph zone. The troopers stopped the speeding truck and interviewed the driver, Paul W. Tuttle, age 46, of Bergen, N.Y. While speaking with Tuttle, the troopers observed a strong odor of alcoholic beverage on his breath. Sobriety tests indicated Tuttle was intoxicated and he was taken into custody for DWI. Tuttle was transported to the Schuyler state police barracks for processing, where Tuttle refused to submit to a chemical test. Tuttle was arraigned in the town of German Flatts court on charges of DWI, speeding, refusal of a breath screen and other traffic charges and remanded to the Herkimer County Jail in lieu of $1,000 cash or $2,000 bond. He is scheduled to reappear in Schuyler town court on January 15, 2018.
