Hinsdale man arrested for DWI after accident

On December 16, 2019, SP Olean Troopers arrested Ryan K. Higley, 19, of Hinsdale, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.

During their investigation of a one-car accident on State Route 446 in the town of Hinsdale, Higley, the driver, was exhibiting obvious signs of intoxication. Troopers determined he had been operating a motor vehicle in an intoxicated condition. He failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Higley was then arrested and transported to SP Olean, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.13% BAC.

Higley was released with an appearance ticket for Hinsdale Town Court, where he is due to appear in January.
