New Milford man charged with DWI in New York
A New Milford man already charged with a felony in Connecticut added a new felony charge to his list in New York Monday.
Michael A. Lalli, 54, was charged by New York state police in Stormville, NY for DWI after he sped on the Taconic State Parkway with a blood-alcohol content of 0.13 percent, a state police press release said.
Lalli’s Ford Explorer was going over 75 miles per hour when police first began chasing him, the release said. He then exited and re-entered the parkway to avoid being stopped, but he came to the stop after being pursued on Interstate 84, the release said.
Lalli then blew a 0.13 percent blood-alcohol content on a breathalyzer, and when police ran his name they found that he wasn’t allowed to drive in New York because of two previous DWI related convictions in the state, the release said.
In New York he was charged with first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation and felony DWI. His next court date there is July 27.
While in Connecticut he is charged with felony second-degree strangulation stemming from a June 8 arrest, court documents show.
His next court date in Connecticut is Aug. 4.
