Chaffee woman arrested for felony DWI after Machias accident
On February 4, 2021, SP Machias Troopers arrested Samantha L. Crandell, 31, of Chaffee, NY for Driving While Intoxicated: Previous Conviction Within Past 10 Years.
Troopers investigating a one-vehicle accident on State Route 16 in the town of Machias determined Crandell had been operating a motor vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. She failed standardized field sobriety tests. Crandell was then arrested and transported to SP Machias, where she refused to submit to a chemical breath test.
Crandell was released with appearance tickets for Machias Town Court, where she is due to appear later this month.
