CANTON A Massena man was indicted Tuesday on charges of driving while intoxicated after he allegedly stole a car.
A St. Lawrence County grand jury charged Brent W. Pelkey, 24, of 10 Cook St., with third-degree grand larceny, third-degree criminal possession of stolen property and DWI.
Mr. Pelkey allegedly stole a car belonging to Robert D. Violi on July 12 and was stopped by state police on Pleasant Street. The grand jury reported that he had a blood alcohol content of 0.12 percent. A BAC of 0.08 percent or higher constitutes proof of intoxication under state law.
