Driver of Car With Open Trunk Charged With DWI

The following information was provided by the Bedford police department and does not indicate a conviction.

Andrew Gallagher, 22, of Katonah, was stopped by Bedford police at 2:43 a.m. on New Year's Day because he was driving a car with an obstructed rear view.

The trunk of Gallagher's car was open but he wasn't aware of it, police said. The investigating police officers said they smelled the odor of alcohol in the car and noticed a number of vodka bottles strewn on the back seat. They asked Gallagher to get out of the car and observed his red, watery eyes. 

Once out of the car, Gallagher performed and failed field sobriety tests. He was taken back to police headquarters and then took a chemical test which resulted in a .11 BAC, according to police. Gallagher was charged with DWI over .08 BAC, driving without a license and driving with an obstructed view. He was released without bail pending a return to town court.

Chappaqua man charged in DWI

Christopher Zuk, 21, was arrested on Jan. 2 and charged with aggravated DWI and speeding after Bedford police officers observed him allegedly driving too fast down Woodsbridge Road in Katonah.

After stopping him at 12:12 a.m. for driving 41 miles per hour in a 30 mph zone, police officers said Zuk appeared to have glassy eyes and spoke with slurred speech. They asked the Chappaqua resident if he had been drinking and he admitted to having three beers.

Zuk failed the police field sobriety tests and was taken to headquarters for processing. There, a chemical test revealed Zuk to have a .21 BAC, more than twice the legal limit. He was released on $100 bail pending a return to Bedford town court.
