A Port Chester man who fell asleep behind the wheel of a running car stopped at a North Regent Street intersection has been charged with felony drunken driving, according to Port Chester police.
When a village police officer woke Aaron Cueva, 21, of 350 N. Regent St., the black Honda Civic he was driving rolled through the intersection and came to a stop when it ran into a cluster of bushes, police said. No one was injured.
Police said they knew something was wrong when they came upon the Honda at 4:33 a.m. Friday and it was just sitting at the intersection, with its windows fogged over. Police said Cueva and a passenger were both asleep in the car — which was in gear with its motor running.
Cueva was found to be intoxicated, police said, and a computer check revealed that Cueva's driver's license was suspended. He was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, a felony, police said.
