Virginia man arrested for DWI at twice the legal limit after Burns crash

On February 6, 2020, SP Amity Troopers arrested Shaan I. Qureshi, 27, of Aldie, VA for Driving While Intoxicated.

Troopers investigating a one-car accident on State Route 70 in the town of Burns determined Qureshi had been operating a vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. He failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Qureshi was then arrested and transported to SP Amity, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.16% BAC.

Qureshi was released with appearance tickets for Burns Town Court, where he is due to appear later this month.
