Machias incident leads to DWI arrest

On June 30, 2019, SP Machias Troopers arrested Julie A. Holland, 51, of Machias, NY for Driving While Intoxicated and Refusal to Take a Breath Test.

While investigating a report of a vehicle striking ducks on North Junction Road in the town of Machias, Holland, identified as the driver, was exhibiting obvious signs of intoxication. Troopers determined she had been operating a motor vehicle in an intoxicated condition. She refused to perform standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Holland was then arrested and transported to SP Machias, where she refused a chemical breath test.

Holland was arraigned in Machias Town Court, where she was released on her own recognizance. She is due to reappear in that court later this month.
