ALBANY, N.Y. — A DWI sweep in Albany County netted an unusual arrest Friday
— a driver of a backhoe swerving down Central Avenue.

Albany police arrested Jesus Ofarril, 44, of Troy, after they saw him
speeding and swerving along the street in the backhoe.

Through the course of the investigation, it was determined that Ofarril's blood
alcohol content was 0.18 percent.

Inside the cab of the back hoe were cans of beer that police poured out
before another driver came to take the backhoe away.

Ofarril
was charged with Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated and Aggravated Unlicensed
Operator 1st-Degree, and also ticketed for several vehicle and
traffic violations.

He
was arraigned this morning in the Albany City Criminal Court.
