A Kingston man was arrested for driving while intoxicated after nearly striking a deputy during a traffic stop.
The Ulster County Sheriff's Department says around 3:45 a.m. on Saturday, deputies were conducting a traffic stop on State Route 32 in Tilson when another vehicle passed by at a high speed, nearly striking the patrol car and deputy.
Deputies then stopped that vehicle near the Rosedale Recreation Center. They say the individual behind the wheel, 29-year-old Jalen Allen, was driving while intoxicated.
Allen has been charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and reckless endangerment. He will appear in court at a later date.
