An Auburn man was arrested and charged early Tuesday morning with driving while intoxicated and unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, state police said in a press release Tuesday.
Troopers stopped 49-year-old Donald Condes on Seymour Street in Auburn after police saw that his vehicle had no working tail lights. After failing multiple standard field sobriety tests, troopers placed Condes under arrest and transported him to the Moravia state police station. According to police, Condes's blood alcohol content measured 0.17 percent following a breath test.
Condes was charged with first-degree unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a felony, driving while intoxicated first offense and operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content of at least .08 of 1 percent, both misdemeanors. He was also issued a traffic infraction for having no tail lights on his vehicle.
Condes was arraigned in Auburn City Court and was remanded to the Cayuga County Jail with no bail, police said. He is scheduled to reappear in court at a later date.
