A Briarcliff Manor woman faces a felony charge in Sleepy Hollow after she was reportedly found asleep at the wheel last week.
Police officers said Nazish Rhaman's vehicle was in the roadway on Teresa Street at Beekman Avenue on Wednesday, Dec. 5 at 11:50 p.m.
Police arrested the 25-year-old Briarcliff Manor resident on a charge of driving while intoxicated. Stiloski’s Towing was called in to tow the car.
Police Chief Gregory Camp said this was the second DWI charge for Rhaman within a 10-year period, thus meriting a felony charge.
A first offense DWI is considered a misdemeanor punishable by fine and possibly up to one year in county jail. If convicted, a DWI felony charge can mean up to four years in state prison.
