Police: Man hit cop car while drunk

CHESTER — A Chestertown man was arrested on Saturday after police said he drove drunk and struck a Warren County Sheriff’s patrol car.

James F. Porter III, 24, was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated and other additional vehicle and traffic violations.

He was traveling south on Landon Hill Road just after 5 a.m., when he crossed a double solid line and hit the patrol vehicle, according to police. There were no injuries reported.

During the investigation, police determined that Porter was intoxicated. He submitted to a chemical breath test and was found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.23% — nearly three times the legal limit for intoxication.

Porter was released and is scheduled to appear in Chestertown Town Court at a later date.
