Police Report: Yonkers Man Arrested for DWI

Eastwoods
DWI arrest:
On Nov. 19, police arrested Craig S. Pearson, 51, of Yonkers, on charges of driving while intoxicated (first offense) and refusal to take a breath test. Pearson was stopped by police at the intersection of Old Lyme Road and Normandy Lane. Upon being stopped, Pearson told police he and his husband had just gotten into an altercation, but he was unable to provide details. While speaking with police, Pearson had difficulty answering simple questions. Patrol smelled alcohol and asked Pearson if he had been drinking. He said he had not. Patrol asked Pearson to step outside the car to perform field sobriety tests. Pearson appeared unsteady on his feet upon exiting the car. His eyes were red and watery. Pearson was unable to perform the tests successfully. Upon attempting to perform an alco-senor test, patrol noticed that Pearson was not blowing into the device, thus failing to provide a breath sample. Pearson was placed under arrest for driving while intoxicated. At headquarters, Pearson was placed under constant supervision because he refused to answer multiple questions during the process of suicide screening and because he was emotional. Pearson presented with minor facial injuries, so police called Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps to assess his condition. A medic advised that Pearson was not in need of immediate medical care. At headquarters, Pearson did not provide an adequate sample to complete a Datamaster test to assess his blood alcohol level. His car, a 2015 Kia, was impounded for safekeeping.
