HARRISON, N.Y. - A Rye man was arrested last month for driving while intoxicated after his jeep was overturned in Harrison, police said. He was not injured beyond a laceration on his shoulder and was treated at the White Plains Hospital.
Harrison police were dispatched close to 2 a.m. on June 24 when Christopher J. Daiber's vehicle was found overturned on a lawn near Purchase Street and Biltmore Avenue. After the officer smelled a "strong odor of an alcoholic beverage" and witnessed Daiber's impaired speech and glassy eyes, he was placed under arrest for DWI.
After being treated for his injury, Daiber was unable to balance himself and needed officers' assistance to prevent him from falling, police said. He refused to submit to a chemical test to determine his blood alcohol content on first request, but agreed later in a second request by police.
Daiber was processed and released at White Plains Hospital without bail.
