LIVINGSTON COUNTY – A man who was charged with felony DWI after an accident between two motorcycles is to be free of all charges related to the accident following a blood test that revealed he had a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.00%.
Cory Whitney, 46, was arrested for felony DWI in September 2014 after his motorcycle and another collided in York, and he refused to take a breath test after police reportedly smelled alcohol on him, and the courts are now performing due process in formally removing the charge.
“Because he’s been arrested, I have to process this charge,” said Assistant District Attorney Victor Rowcliffe. “Just to get it off the books.”
The crash injured Whitney’s right arm, which was still in a sling in court on Thursday.
Whitney’s attorney, Vincent Meranti, took care to establish that Whitney will not be accused of other charges in connection to the accident, and ADA Rowcliffe assured him that Whitney will indeed not be charged in connection to the incident.
