A 36-year-old Port Chester man was charged with disorderly conduct Tuesday when he refused to get out of the roadway in downtown Port Chester as a village DPW crew was trying to clear piles of snow, according to Port Chester police.
A village officer was assigned to traffic safety duty as the DPW was clearing snow at Westchester Avenue and North Main Street at 1:27 a.m. when a man - carrying an open container of alcohol - came through the area walking in the middle of the roadway.
The village officer told the man repeatedly to get out of the roadway and get away from the crew trying to remove snow. Police said the man refused to leave the area and began arguing with the police officer.
Police said the man was charged with disorderly conduct after he tried to open one of the doors on a Port Chester police car. The man was also cited with a violation for carrying an open container of alcohol in public.
