ONEONTA – An Oneonta driver is facing felony charges after having been arrested on drunk-driving for the third time in the past decade, state police report.
Jason A. Thomas, 37, was arrested at 1:46 a.m. Wednesday after he allegedly failed to signal a turn as he entered Route 11A in the Town of Laurens, according to a press release. Troopers alleged he was driving while intoxicated, and said he was driving with a suspended license.
Because he had two prior DWI convictions in the past decade, he was charged with a Class D felony DWI, a Class E felony of aggravated unlicensed operation, and several traffic violations, police said.
Thomas was arraigned at the Oneonta Town court and was remanded to the Otsego County jail in lieu of $1,500 cash bail or $3,000 property bond. He was due to appear in Laurens town court today.
