ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- Two men were charged with DWI by Rockland County Sheriff's deputies during a DWI checkpoint, and another during a traffic stop on Sunday, according to the Rockland County Sheriff's Office.
Michael Slapp, 31, of Fort Montgomery, was charged with DWI after being stopped by a deputy around 1:25 a.m., for an equipment violation. When the deputy approached Slapp he could tell he was intoxicated. Subsequent tests showed Slapp was driving with a blood alcohol level above .08 percent, said Sheriff Louis Falco.
Slapp was also charged with driving with a suspended registration and possession of marijuana. He was released and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, April 24.
