Scio man arrested for DWI in Amity

On May 27, 2019, SP Amity Troopers arrested Malachi J. Pendleton, 25, of Scio, NY for Driving While Intoxicated and Unlawful Possession of Marihuana.

During a traffic stop at Crosby’s convenience store on State Route 19 in the town of Amity, Pendleton 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. Troopers also determined Pendleton to be in possession of marijuana. Pendleton was then arrested and transported to SP Amity, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.11% BAC.

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