Cortland Man Charged With DWI After Hitting Police Car
A Cortland man is facing several charges, including DWI after he struck a Broome County Sheriff's Office patrol car.
The sheriff's office says Zackary Kohout rear-ended the patrol car on Main Street in the Town of Lisle on Sunday, March 5th.
Kohout displayed several signs that suggested he was intoxicated, according to the office, and he admitted to deputies he had been drinking prior to the crash.
Kohout agreed to begin a Standardized Field Sobriety test, but refused to finish the test. He also refused to submit a breath sample.
He was charged with DWI, Following Too Closely, Driving at a Speed Not Reasonable & Prudent, and Consumption of Alcohol in a Motor Vehicle.
The deputy who was operating the patrol car was taken to Wilson Hospital for treatment of minor injuries and was released.
