Investigators say 37-year-old Brenten Bryan of Stamford had a blood alcohol content that was measured at 0.24 percent. That's three times the legal limit.

According to state police, Bryan was arrested about 8:35 a.m. Monday, shortly after he drove a young child to South Kortright Central School.

Troopers say Bryan was charged after he was observed speeding on Route 10 and then entering the school parking lot.

Authorities say a trooper waited near the school and pulled the vehicle over after the child was dropped off.

Investigators say police determined Bryan had been driving "while highly intoxicated."

Bryan was charged with felony aggravated driving while intoxicated with a passenger under the age of 16. He also was cited for aggravated DWI and other traffic violations.

Bryan was ordered to appear in Kortright town court on February 21.
