PUTNAM COUNTY, N.Y. - A man from Patterson was busted allegedly drinking and driving after a fellow motorist contacted the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office to report an erratic driver on Route 22.

The Sheriff’s Office received a cell phone call from a motorist shortly before 11 p.m. on June 17, claiming that there was an erratically driven vehicle spotted turning off Route 22 onto Route 311 in Patterson.

A Sheriff’s deputy who was on patrol at the time spotted the car a few minutes later, crossing back-and-forth over the double yellow lines on Route 311. During the subsequent stop, it was determined that 53-year-old Patterson resident Ramond Maguire was allegedly operating his vehicle while intoxicated.

Maguire was charged with a misdemeanor count of driving while intoxicated, which the Sheriff’s Office noted could be punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. He was released on his own recognizance and is due back in Carmel Town Justice Court later this year.
