A Moravia woman is facing a felony driving while intoxicated charge following a traffic stop in the town of Scipio, according to the state police.
Catherine F. Gumtow, 39, was pulled over on Hicks Road Sept. 1 after she failed to dim her vehicle's lights, police said. She was arrested after failing multiple field sobriety tests.
Gumtow was transported to the state police headquarters in Moravia. She refused to submit a breath sample numerous times, according to a news release.
She was charged with felony driving while intoxicated because she has two previous convictions within a 10-year period, police said. She also was charged with refusal to submit to a breath test, drinking alcohol in a motor vehicle on a highway and failure to dim lights.
Gumtow was arraigned in Owasco town court and remanded to the Cayuga County Jail in lieu of $500 cash or $1,000 bond. She was scheduled to reappear in court Wednesday.
