Freedom man arrested for DWI

On February 9, 2020, SP Machias Troopers arrested Richard E. Hoffman, 58, of Freedom, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.

During a traffic stop on California Hill Road in the town of Freedom, Troopers determined Hoffman had been operating a vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. He failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Hoffman was then arrested and transported to SP Machias, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.14% BAC.

Hoffman was issued appearance tickets for Freedom Town Court, where he is due to appear later this month.
