Mohawk Man Arrested for DWI While Trying to Drive Onto a Lake

Kathy Whyte/ WNBF News

New York State Police say a Herkimer County man is charged with drunk driving after a trooper observed him trying to drive his vehicle onto a frozen Otsego County lake.

Troopers say 21 year old Zachary Pohleven of Mohawk had a blood alcohol level of .12% when he was seen driving erratically near a boat launch on Canadarago Lake in Richfield Springs January 25.

Troopers say they believed Pohleven was planning to drive onto the frozen lake, which has also been known as Schuyler Lake, for unknown reasons before they stopped him.

Pohleven was ordered to appear in Town of Richfield Court next month.
