Windsor Man Charged with Felony DWI Following Crash

27 year old Kenneth DeGroat Junior was arrested following a call to 911 about the crash at 6:04 a.m. Authorities say DeGroat apparently got a ride to a nearby gas station and left the bike at the crash scene. He was not hurt.
Troopers say the drunk driving charge is a felony since DeGroat had been convicted on a prior DWI in the past ten years. He was also found to have a suspended license and not having a court-ordered ignition interlock device.
