Police: Stony Point Man Who Didn't Yield To Emergency Vehicle Was Drunk

A Stony Point man is facing charges of driving while intoxicated after he was stopped by state police in Delaware County.

Police said that Thomas P. Brannigan, 24, was pulled over on Route 23 in the town of Davenport around 12:19 a.m. Monday, Nov. 14.

The troopers who arrested Brannigan said they had been stopped, with their red lights flashing, while they assisted local sheriff’s deputies at the scene of a car-deer accident.

According to police, Brannigan failed to yield the right of way to an emergency vehicle when he neither slowed down, nor moved over one lane, as he drove past the accident scene in his pickup truck.

Brannigan was pulled over and, police said, subsequently charged with misdemeanor DWI and other traffic violations.

He was arraigned in Town of Davenport Court and was sent to the Delaware County Jail in lieu of $1,500 cash bail or $3,000 property bond.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo Monday announced that the state will conduct week-long campaign to increase public awareness of the “Move Over” law.

The law, in effect since 2011, requires drivers to use care, slow down and move over when approaching law enforcement vehicles, fire trucks, ambulances, tow trucks, construction and maintenance vehicles stopped along the road.

The law was first put in place to protect law enforcement and emergency services personnel from other vehicles. It has since been expanded to include more emergency and hazard vehicles.
