LAKE GEORGE -- A Fort Ann man was arrested on a felony driving while intoxicated charge early Sunday in Lake George, police said.

Michael J. Bethel, 24, was arrested after a 1:12 a.m. traffic stop on Route 9, according to the State Police public information website.

He has at least one prior DWI conviction within the past 10 years, which elevated the charge filed Sunday to a felony.

Bethel was released pending prosecution in Lake George Town Court.

The DWI arrest was one of five made by state troopers in Warren, Washington and Saratoga counties late Saturday or early Sunday.

    It is about time to increase the penalties for those repeat offenders. Put them to work on a local farm for 12 hours a day for a year.
