In the evening of October 19th, 2018, a Trooper from SP Princetown stopped a vehicle for driving 85mph in a 55mph zone. While interviewing the driver, Richard C. Knight, Troopers believed Knight was showing signs of intoxication and asked him to exit his vehicle to do field sobriety testing. Knight exited his vehicle and was having trouble maintaining his balance. Knight told the Troopers he did not wish to take the sobriety tests because he knew he was drunk. Knight was taken into custody and transported to SP Princetown where he gave a positive breath sample of .20% BAC. Knight was charged with Aggravated DWI and will appear in Town of Rotterdam court.
