Newsday VP charged with DWI

A Newsday vice president was arrested and charged with driving with more than twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system, a spokesman for Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice said on Friday.

Timothy J. Martin, Newsday's vice president for human resources and labor relations, was swerving and driving with no left front tire when police stopped him on Northern Boulevard Thursday night, Rice spokesman Eric Phillips said.

Martin, 37, of Forest Hills, Queens, later took a sobriety test that showed his blood alcohol level was .18 percent. The legal limit is .08 percent, Phillips said. Martin pleaded not guilty to aggravated driving while intoxicated and was released without bail. He could not be reached for comment.
