On February 1, 2020, State Police in Schodack arrested 29-year-old Anita C. Deragon of Watervliet, for Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated (misdemeanor) and two counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th degree (A misdemeanor).
At approximately 2:53 a.m. on Saturday, State Police stopped to investigate a vehicle that was parked in the right-hand lane of Columbia Turnpike in the Town of East Greenbush. When a Trooper approached the vehicle, they found Deragon asleep in the driver’s seat. It took the Trooper multiple attempts to wake her. Deragon displayed signs of intoxication and was administered the Standardized Field Sobriety test, which she failed. Deragon was also found to be in possession of a quantity of concentrated cannabis. She was subsequently taken into custody and transported to SP Schodack where she provided a breath sample of .23% B.A.C.
Deragon was issued an appearance ticket and is due in East Greenbush Town Court on February 13, 2020, at 5:30 p.m.
