Man accused of DWI after seen driving a car with three wheels

LAKE LUZERNE, N.Y. – A Hartford man was arrested on Thursday on DWI charges after police saw him driving with only three tires.

According to the Warren County Sheriff's Office, Jaycen Alden, 23, was driving in the area of Gurney Lane when police received a phone call about an erratic operator that struck a guard rail and lost a tire.

Alden continued to drive although he lost one wheel.  However, authorities were able to catch up to the vehicle in the area on Gage Hill Road in Lake Luzerne.

The man was charged with Felony Aggravated DWI because he has had two prior DWI convictions in the past 10 years. 

The Sheriff's Office also said he was charged with Felony Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle because he was driving with a revoked driver's license from his previous DWI conviction.

Alden was also driving a relative's vehicle at the time of the incident on Thursday.  Alden is required to have an Ignition Interlock Device in any vehicle he drives.  He is now charged with misdemeanor of Operating a Motor Vehicle without Ignition Interlock.

Alden was sent to police lock up for lack of bail. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Lake Luzerne Court.
