An Ontario County woman was charged with driving while intoxicated following a traffic stop on Interstate 390, reports the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputy Gordon Truax was assigned to the Sheriff’s Office Operation Safe Interstate initiative on Jan. 9 when he responded to a complaint of a vehicle that was reported to be all over the road while traveling south on Interstate 390 and entering Livingston County from Monroe County. The deputy located the vehicle about 9:20 p.m. traveling south on Interstate 390 and observed alleged violations of the state Vehicle and Traffic Law, the Sheriff’s Office said.
A traffic stop was conducted and the operator of the vehicle identified as Priscilla J. Coon, 29, or Shortsville.
The deputy suspected that Coon was under the influence of alcohol. Deputy Michael Donals of the Sheriff’s Office STOP DWI Unit responded to the scene to conduct a DWI investigation, which included the performance of standardized field sobriety tests.
At the conclusion of the roadside investigation, Coon was taken into custody for DWI. She was transported to the Sheriff’s Office in Geneseo where she refused to breathalyzer to determine her blood alcohol content.
A records check revealed that Coon had a revoked driver’s license as a result of previous DWI-related offenses.
Coon was charged with DWI and first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a Class E felony.
She was turned over to Central Booking deputies at Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraignment detention. The offenses did qualify for arraignment under the state Justice Reform Act. The justice was not allowed to set bail, but could apply license restrictions.
Coon was later arraigned at Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part at Livingston County Jail before Town of Livonia Justice Robert Lemen, who released Coon on her own recognizance and provided a future court date.
