Penn Yan man drove drunk, charged with DWI

Members of the Penn Yan Police Department arrested a Penn Yan resident for driving while intoxicated after a traffic stop on Liberty St.

Officers say that Shawn M. Madigan, 31, of Penn Yan was charged with DWI after the traffic stop, where he had been observed making a turn without using a signal.

After stopping the vehicle, Madigan admitted to consuming alcohol before driving — and was placed through a series of field sobriety tests.

He was taken to the Yates County Public Safety Building for a chemical test, which showed a blood-alcohol content of .10 percent. He was charged with DWI, DWI with .08 percent or higher, no turn signal and consumption of alcohol in a motor vehicle.

The charges will be answered in Penn Yan Village Court at a later date.
