MOUNT MORRIS, N.Y. (WHEC) — A Mount Morris man is facing felony charges after troopers say he drove at twice the legal BAC limit with a revoked license.

Troopers say it started on Mount Morris-Nunda Road, when a Deputy Sheriff pulled over David C. Hopkins, 66, and suspected he was drunk.

The Deputy Sheriff had Hopkins do standard field sobriety tests, and he was taken into custody for DWI.

Troopers say a records check showed that Hopkins had a revoked license for a previous DWI-related offense and a previous DWI conviction within the last 10 years.

Hopkins blew .18% when his BAC was tested, according to troopers.

He was charged with felony aggravated driving while intoxicated and felony aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the first degree.

Hopkins was arraigned and released on his own recognizance. He’s due back in court at a later date.
