Motorists charged with DWI


The following were charged with driving while intoxicated and related offenses:

n Ryan M. Gibson, 22, of 318 Lake Ozonia Road, St. Regis Falls, also was charged by St. Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies with third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, failure to keep right, consuming alcohol in a motor vehicle and refusal to submit to a breath screening device following a traffic stop Saturday night on Market Street in Potsdam.

The stop stemmed from a complaint that a blue Jeep Cherokee matching the description of Mr. Gibson’s vehicle had run another motorist off Sissonville Road in the town of Potsdam.

Deputies said Mr. Gibson later took a Breathalyzer test and had a blood alcohol content of 0.17 percent, more than twice the state intoxication threshold of 0.08 percent BAC.

n Lisa M. Dubois, 52, of 66 Anthony St., Apt. 2, was charged at 11:03 p.m. Monday by state police with felony aggravated DWI after a traffic stop on Interstate 81 in the town of Pamelia.

Her BAC was listed as 0.18 percent. Aggravated DWI is charged when the BAC is 0.18 percent or more. The charge was a felony due to a prior DWI conviction within the past 10 years.

n Albert L. McKnight, 28, Philadelphia, also was charged by state police with driving an all-terrain vehicle on a closed road at 12:57 a.m. Sunday on Route 11 in the town of Pamelia. He had a BAC of 0.08 percent, police said.

n Jeffrey A. Ruiz, 24, Fort Drum, was charged by state police at 3:05 a.m. Sunday on Route 11 in the town of LeRay. He had a BAC of 0.13 percent, police said.

n Craig M. Leviker, 40, Lowville, also was charged by state police with failure to keep right at 2:39 a.m. Sunday on Route 12 in the town of Lowville. He was charged based on police observations pending results of a blood test.

n John S. Oregon, 24, of 829 Boyd St., Watertown, was charged by state police about 11:25 p.m. Monday after he was observed in a convenience store parking lot in Adams Center. Police were unable to provide a BAC.

n William E. Martin, 40, of 25339 Route 126, Watertown, also was charged by Watertown police at 10:19 p.m. Sunday in the 100 block of Willow Street with failure to signal a turn. His BAC was 0.15 percent, police said.

n Donovan J. Singleton, 30, of 10134 Fourth Armored Division Drive, Fort Drum, also was charged by Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies with failure to dim headlights and driving without a license at 11:50 p.m. Friday on Route 11 in the town of Pamelia.

His BAC tested just below the intoxication threshold at 0.07 percent, deputies said, but he apparently was charged with DWI based on police observations.
