Andrew Marsh, 22, of Alice Court, was driving south on State Route 135 when police said he struck a guardrail on the right shoulder, at about 9:20 p.m. He exited on a ramp to the eastbound Northern State Parkway and then called 911, police said.
When a trooper responded, Marsh had bloodshot, watery eyes and a strong odor of alcohol, a news release said. The trooper also noticed an open beer bottle and a marijuana pipe inside the vehicle, the release said.
Marsh failed sobriety tests and was arrested, police said. Police said they also found six lorazepam pills, an anti-anxiety medication, inside Marsh's car, a white Dodge.
Police also said Marsh provided a breath-analyzer reading of .17 percent.
He is charged with DWI, criminal possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of marijuana and several traffic violations, police said.
He is scheduled to appear at First District Court in Hempstead on July 13.
