Bronx man charged with DWI after short pursuit in city
A Bronx man has been charged with drunken driving after leading police on a short pursuit early Tuesday morning, according to law enforcement officials.
Roy Davis, 22, was spotted running a stop sign in the 900 block of W. Liberty St. at about 1:13 a.m. Tuesday, but police said he did not pull over when Officer Joseph A. Pruckno hit the lights and siren.
Police said Pruckno pursued Davis onto Erie Boulevard, where Davis finally pulled over into the parking lot of McDonald’s in the 1100 block.
Once he was stopped, it was determined that Davis was driving drunk, authorities said.
Officer Hollie B. Kennedy assisted in the drunken driving investigation.
Davis is charged with driving while intoxicated, failure to comply, failure to stop for a police officer, failure to stop for a stop sign and moving from lane unsafely, authorities said.
Davis pleaded not guilty before City Court Judge Gregory J. Amoroso.
He is scheduled to return Oct. 11, according to the law enforcement officials.
