On October 31, 2020, SP Olean Troopers arrested Christopher G. Bennett, 55, of Cuba, NY for Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th Degree.
During a traffic stop on State Route 16 in the town of Hinsdale, Troopers determined Bennett had been operating a vehicle while in an impaired condition. He failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. He was also found to be in possession of methamphetamine. Bennett was then arrested and transported to SP Olean, where a Drug Recognition Expert evaluation confirmed impairment.
Bennett was arrested and released with appearance tickets for Hinsdale Town Court, where he is due to appear later this month.
