Man Charged with DWI and Resisting Arrest. 92 Year-Old Driver Hits Pedestrian and Firehouse Re-Opens

ParkRoadDWI arrest: While conducting burglary patrol on Old Lyme Road, police encountered a parked 2007 Toyota Land Cruiser with its engine running and a man sleeping inside at the steering wheel 3 a.m., Sept. 19. Police attempted to wake the man by tapping on the window, but it was unsuccessful. Police then opened the driver’s door, and the man woke up and began to speak incoherently. A strong odor of alcohol was detected in his breath. Police reached into the car and turned off the ignition but were not able to remove the keys. The man – Felix Davey, 30, of New York City – was incoherent with his speech and unable to answer questions; so police asked him to step out of the car. In response to being asked to step out of the car, Davey allegedly responded insensibly several times with his eyes closed: “I don’t want to f*** you.” Davey stepped out of the car, then re-entered it and put on his seat belt, indicating an intention to drive away in a dangerous state. Police called for backup and put hands on Davey, while giving clear verbal commands, in an attempt to separate him from his car for safety. Davey became combative and non-compliant. Davey grabbed the officer with both hands and partially pulled him into the car. Backup officers arrived, opened the passenger door and successfully pushed Davey out of the car. Three officers then struggled with Davey to get him to the ground and put handcuffs on him. One officer fell and was injured in the process. An alco-sensor test confirmed the presence of alcohol in Davey’s body. Davey was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated (first offense), operation of a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol level of at least .08 of one percent, resisting arrest, obstruction of government administration and second-degree assault. Following arrest processing, Davey was transported to Scarsdale Village Justice Court for arraignment by Judge Alemany. Alemany set bail at $2,500 cash / $5,000 bond. Unable to post bail, Davey was then transported to Westchester County Jail, and his car was impounded.
