POUND RIDGE Pound Ridge police made two motor vehicle-related arrests this past week, one for DWI and one for driving with a suspended license.
Officers Friday saw a car heading south on Salem Road being operating erratically. Police pulled the car over and questioned the driver, Joseph Scofield, 55, of Pound Ridge. The officers suspected Scofield had been drinking. Police said he did not cooperate with them at first and nearly fell out of his car when he tried to get out.
Scofield was issued field sobriety tests and failed, police said. He was then taken into custody for driving while intoxicated. A DMV computer check showed Scofield has a suspended New York State drivers license. He was processed and arraigned in Pound Ridge Justice Court and remanded to Westchester County Jail on $5,000 bail.
Police arrested Nicolas Jaffre, 41, of New Canaan, Conn. Monday for driving along Westchester Avenue with a suspended license. Jaffre was charged with third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. Bail was set at $250. He is scheduled to return to court Monday to answer this charge as well as a previous violation.
