On May 28, 2021, SP Olean Troopers arrested Christopher G. Bennett, 55, of Cuba, NY for Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th Degree, and Operating a Motor Vehicle With a Suspended Registration.
During a traffic stop on State Route 16 in the town of Hinsdale, Troopers observed Bennett exhibiting obvious signs of impairment and determined he had been operating a motor vehicle while in an impaired condition. He was also found to be in possession of crack cocaine. He failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Bennett was then arrested and transported to SP Olean, where a Drug Recognition Expert evaluation confirmed impairment.
Bennett was released with appearance tickets for Hinsdale Town Court, where he is due to appear in June.
