On December 11, 2020, SP Amity Troopers arrested Finley B. Cooperwood, 56, of Belmont, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.
During a traffic stop on State Route 19 in the town of Hinsdale, Troopers determined Cooperwood had been operating a motor vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. He failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Cooperwood was then arrested and transported to SP Amity, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.15% BAC.
Cooperwood was released with appearance tickets for Scio Town Court, where he is due to appear in January.
