GLENS FALLS -- A Glens Falls lawyer was charged with misdemeanor driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest after a traffic stop late Thursday, police said.
John W. Caffry, 54, of Glens Falls was arrested after an 11:53 p.m. traffic stop on Ridge Street, according to Glens Falls Police.
He was stopped because the vehicle he was driving had a headlight out, Glens Falls Police Capt. Robert Ash said.
Caffry failed field sobriety tests, and when informed by Glens Falls Police Officer Andrew Mija that he was under arrest, Caffry replied "No I'm not" and tried to walk away from the officer, Ash said.
That alleged act resulted in the resisting arrest count.
Caffry was found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.09 percent, just above the 0.08 percent threshold for DWI, according to police.
He was released pending prosecution in City Court. He said he had no comment on the matter Friday.
