TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – Tarrytown police charged a motorist with driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor, after he reportedly struck a car in Sleepy Hollow, left the scene and drove through Tarrytown.

Police say Michael A. Lawson, 41, was spotted driving erratically on South Broadway toward Route 119 around 7 p.m. on July 5. A 911 caller reported Lawson's car had crashed into at least one car in Sleepy Hollow and was turning onto Route 119 eastbound.
