Saratoga Woman Arrested on DWI Charge
A 28-year-old Saratoga Springs woman was arrested on Sept. 4 on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
According to court records, Danielle C. Smith of Adams Street faces 3 felony counts in connection with the incident, which occurred at 2:45am near the corner of Broadway* and Spring Street.
According to court documents, at the time of the arrest Smith had a blood-alcohol content of 0.19%, well over the legal limit of .08% and .01% over the threshold for qualifying as “aggravated driving while intoxicated.”
This was the second time Smith has been charged with a DWI in less than a year. She was convicted of drunk driving on Nov. 9, 2011 in the Lake George Town Court. Because she has now been charged with another DWI less than 10 years after a previous conviction, police say the charge this time is a felony rather than a misdemeanor.
Smith was also charged with three violations, including speeding, failure to signal a turn, and failure to comply with police.
She was released without bail and is scheduled to return to city court on Sept. 21.
