AGGRAVATED DWI - POTSDAM St. Lawrence County Sheriffs Department deputies charged Christy M. Chase, 26, of Hermonwith aggravated driving while intoxicated, third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and failure to stop at a stop sign on Monday.
Deputies allege that Chase was involved in a property damage accident after losing control of her vehicle and hitting some trees on Emerson Road, Potsdam. Deputies conducted a breath test on Ms. Chase that resulted in a blood alcohol content of 0.19 percent. A BAC of 0.18 percent or higher elevates a DWI charge to an aggravated DWI count.
Chase was issued appearance tickets returnable to Potsdam Town Court at a later date.
