A Harrison man police say bumped a parked car while backing out of his First Street driveway has been accused of driving while ability impaired.
Police say Adam Steinberg, 27, was backing out of his driveway at 75 First Street on July 31 when he bumped a maroon Kia parked nearby. The owner of the Kia chased Steinberg's vehicle as it left the scene and proceeded onto Fremont St., according to an arrest report.
A witness called police, who approached Steinberg's vehicle on Fremont Street and determined he was under the influence of some type of drug, according to an arrest report.
During a search of Steinberg's vehicle police say they found a prescribed bottle of Alprazolam, a pill used to treat anxiety. The bottle had been filled with 60 pills the previous day, but only contained 21 when police checked following the accident, according to an arrest report.
Steinberg said had taken four of the pills that day before attempting to drive, police say.
Police conducted a field sobriety test at the scene, which Steinberg failed, according to an arrest report. Steinberg was arrested at that time and charged with driving while ability impaired, a misdemeanor.
A urine test was taken and Steinberg was transported to White Plains Hospital for treatment. He was later released without bail and was due in court on August 7.
