Fabian Rivera, the former chief of the Macedon Police Department, entered a plea of not guilty to two DWI charges in Walworth Town Court.
The charges stem from an incident in November where Rivera allegedly crashed a patrol vehicle near Gananda school grounds and later drove under the influence in his personal car.
Court documents reveal that after the initial crash, a Macedon police sergeant and a trainee officer escorted Rivera to his Walworth home, where he proceeded to drive again while intoxicated.
Authorities reported that Rivera’s blood alcohol content registered at 0.25, significantly exceeding the legal limit.
Following his arrest, Rivera resigned from his position, and his driving privileges were suspended for 30 days.
The incident has also led to the suspension of the sergeant involved, pending an investigation by the Macedon Town Board, the outcome of which remains pending.
