EASTCHESTER, N.Y. --A New Rochelle woman was arrested last Wednesday and charged with driving while intoxicated.
Caterina Amorosano, 47, Faneuil Place, New Rochelle was stopped at a routine safety check conducted August 10 at 7:30 p.m. at on Labelle Road.
Amorosano was asked to pull over when officers spotted an expired inspection sticker. Officers noticed Amorosano was slurring her speech and they detected a strong odor of alcohol. An open, half full bottle of beer was also spotted in the vehicle.
Amorosano was placed under arrest when it was determined she was driving with a revoked license. At the police station, Amorosano failed the field sobriety test. She was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation, and felony DWI. A person can only be charged with felony DWI when they have a previous DWI conviction within a 10-year period.
Amorosano was remanded to Westchester County Jail and is due back to Eastchester Town Court today.
Meanwhile, a Hopewell Junction man was injured and arrested in a DWI arrest early Sunday morning.
Police responded to a motor vehicle accident on Aug. 14 at 2:36 a.m. on White Plains Road in front of Faucet Works, just south of Fisher Avenue.

He was arrested there and charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle and misdemeanor DWI. He was released on his own recognizance due to significant injuries sustained in the accident, and is due in court today.
