Oneonta Man Charged With DWI Twice In Same Morning
An Otsego County man was arrested twice for driving while intoxicated after two separate incidents a few hours apart at a McDonald’s restaurant.
Authorities say 31-year-old Zachary Boynton of Oneonta was first charged with DWI after he allegedly drove his car into a vehicle in front of him at the drive-through on Route 23.
State police say that incident happened shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday. Troopers say Boynton’s blood alcohol content was measured at 0.25 percent.
Boynton was issued an appearance ticket and turned over to a sober person.
State police were called back to the McDonald’s around 5:15 a.m. to investigate a report of a car striking the building and driving off.
Troopers say they found Boynton’s newly-damaged car outside his Southside Drive residence.
Boynton was again arrested for DWI. He was treated for injuries at A.O. Fox Hospital in Oneonta.
Boyntown was arraigned in Oneonta town court and released to another person without bail being required.
