Sometimes a defendant's actions at the time of arrest will make defense counsel's job a bit more challenging. That's probably the case regarding the recent arrest of a 50-year-old male of Troy for aggravated DWI. The arrest occurred at a gas station in Rensselaer County where the arresting New York State Trooper was at a pump filling his tank.
At that time, the suspect allegedly drove up and parked next to the trooper's vehicle. The suspect alighted from his truck and walked directly into the trooper's marked patrol car, according to the trooper. The man then allegedly stumbled into the store and came back to his car to pump gas.
