On September 22, 2019, SP Machias Troopers arrested Kerin M. Benz, 38, of Freedom, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.
During a traffic stop on Edmunds Road in the town of Freedom, Troopers determined Benz had been operating a vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. She failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Benz was then arrested and transported to SP Machias, where a chemical breath test revealed her to have a 0.11% BAC.
Benz was released with appearance tickets for Freedom Town Court, where she is due to appear in October.
