Three men charged with DWI


The following people are charged with driving while intoxicated and related offenses:

n Aaron T. Capone, 36, of Route 56, Hannawa Falls, was charged by St. Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies with felony counts of aggravated DWI, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, second-degree forgery and first-degree offering a false instrument for filing and a misdemeanor charge of second-degree criminal impersonation following a traffic stop early Saturday on Route 56 in the town of Potsdam.

Deputies said Aaron Capone had identified himself as his brother, Jason, during the stop and signed several documents with Jason Capone’s name while he was being processed on the DWI charge. Deputies had issued a news release Saturday morning reporting that Jason Capone, 41, had been charged with aggravated DWI before determining the vehicle actually had been driven by his brother. Aaron Capone’s blood alcohol content was 0.24 percent, deputies said. Under state law, a BAC of 0.08 percent or more is considered proof of intoxication. Aggravated DWI is charged when the BAC is 0.18 percent or more.

n Lee W. Moody, 33, Potsdam, also was charged by Potsdam village police with first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and unlawful possession of marijuana following a traffic stop at 12:19 a.m. Saturday on Mechanic Street.

Police said Mr. Moody was found to possess a suspended Virginia driver’s license and a revoked New York driver’s license. A subsequent search of him and his vehicle resulted in the discovery of a small plastic bag containing a small amount of marijuana and a glass marijuana smoking device, police said. Mr. Moody had a blood alcohol content of 0.18 percent, they said.

n Mica P. Gabala, 29, Gouverneur, was charged with aggravated DWI and operating an unregistered and uninsured vehicle by Potsdam village police at 5:16 p.m. Thursday. Police said Mr. Gabela was stopped for driving with an inadequate exhaust on Main Street. His BAC was measured at 0.24 percent, they said.
