Police: Scotia woman arrested twice in one day for Felony DWI

Police say a woman from Scotia is being accused of two DWI’s, all in one day.

Authorities say on January 23 Troopers from the Northway Station arrested 44-year-old Dusty Pedersen of Scotia for Felony DWI.

They say at approximately 1:30 a.m., Troopers stopped a vehicle on Cemetery Road in the Town of Halfmoon for traffic violations. When interviewing Pedersen, troopers say they detected the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage from her breath. Standardized Field Sobriety Tests were administered and she was arrested for DWI.

Officials say she was transported to the station where she provided a breath sample resulting in a .09% blood alcohol concentration. Pedersen was charged with Felony DWI due to a previous conviction within ten years and released to a sober third party.

Police say at approximately 8:00 p.m. on the same day, Pedersen drove to the Northway Station to complete additional paperwork from her earlier DWI arrest. When she got there, troopers observed her to have bloodshot, glassy eyes and also detected the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage from her breath. Standardized Field Sobriety Tests were attempted once again, and she was arrested a second time for Felony DWI.

She refused to submit to a breath test and was arraigned in the Town of Clifton Park Court where she was remanded to Saratoga County Jail.
