Shocking Morning Scene on Route 9: Clifton Park Police Discover Sleeping Driver with Startling .19% BAC

Unbelievable Predawn Discovery: Clifton Park Police Uncover a Snoozing Driver with a Shocking Twist

A Troubling Start to the Day in Clifton Park

In the quiet early hours of Thursday morning, an unexpected scene unfolded on Route 9 in Clifton Park, capturing the attention of local residents and authorities alike. State Police, while patrolling the serene streets of our beloved town, stumbled upon a vehicle that was anything but ordinary. It was approximately 2:43 a.m., a time when the moon still whispers to the sleeping town, and they found a man, identified as 34-year-old Nicholas A. Rodriguez from neighboring Halfmoon, fast asleep at the wheel.

Asleep at the Wheel: A Perilous Slumber

Rodriguez wasn’t just catching a few z’s in a parked car; this was a situation teetering on the edge of danger. His vehicle was not only running but was also ominously set to drive, a ticking time bomb of potential havoc on the otherwise peaceful Clifton Park roads. The discovery paints a picture of a moment just suspended in time, a breath held before a possible calamity.

Upon awakening Rodriguez from his hazardous slumber, the authorities took no chances. He was promptly charged with driving while intoxicated, a serious offense that reflects the commitment of Clifton Park’s law enforcement to keeping our streets safe. Transported to the State Police Clifton Park station, Rodriguez underwent a blood alcohol concentration test, which revealed a staggering 0.19% – far exceeding the legal limit and underscoring the gravity of the situation.

With tickets issued and a date set for Clifton Park Town Court on January 4th, Rodriguez was released into the care of a sober third party. This incident serves as a stark reminder of the perils of driving under the influence and the vigilant eyes of our local police force, ever-watchful even in the town’s most tranquil hours.
