Drunk driver charged in connection to stolen vehicles, theft and handgun

NORWICH – New York State Police arrested an armed Norwich man for drunk driving Friday after he got in an accident with a stolen pick-up.

State Police Sgt. Elizabeth R. Wonka said the incident began Friday afternoon when a Town of Norwich resident complained that an unknown man in a pick-up truck was intentionally destroying his lawn. The victim told police the truck was spinning its tires and performing other erratic maneuvers.
