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 driving while intoxicated.

Mr. Pelkey allegedly stole a car belonging to Robert D. Violi on July 12 and was stopped by state police on Pleasant Street in Canton. The grand jury reported that Mr. Pelkey had a blood alcohol content of 0.12 percent. A BAC of 0.08 percent or higher constitutes proof of intoxication under state law.

Mr. Pelkey previously was convicted of DWI as a misdemeanor in St. Lawrence County Court on Oct. 22, 2007. Also on that date, he was convicted of fourth-degree grand larceny and sentenced to one year in St. Lawrence County jail. He is now subject to being sentenced as a second felony offender.
