Police: Penn Yan man had BAC of .30% during traffic stop

On Tuesday around 2:28 a.m. a Penn Yan man was arrested for driving with a BAC nearly four-times the legal limit.

Police say Chad Allison Jr., 28, of Penn Yan was arrested after a traffic stop in the Village.

Allison was observed driving erratically on Elm Street, which resulted in a traffic stop being initiated. Officers observed a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from Allison’s vehicle.

They say his speech and coordination was also impaired.

Allison was placed through field sobriety tests, which he failed. Deputies transported him to the Yates County Jail, where he submitted to a breath test.

Police say Allison had a BAC of 0.31%.

Subsequent investigation revealed that Allison’s driving privileges had also been suspended since 2012. He was charged with driving while intoxicated, aggravated driving while intoxicated, aggravated unlicensed operation, improper turn signal, and moving from lane unsafely.

He was held at the Yates County Jail pending arraignment.
