A State Supreme Court justice from Yorktown Heights was charged with driving while intoxicated near Albany on Wednesday after refusing a blood-alcohol test, State Police at Latham said.
Police said 47-year-old Carl. J. Landicino was "driving aggressively" on Interstate 87 in Colonie when he caught the attention of troopers, who pulled him over at 4:06 p.m.
Landicino is a justice at Kings County Supreme Court in the 2nd Judicial District of New York. He was elected in November 2011 to a 14-year term, which ends in 2025. Before he was a judge, Landicino was an attorney in private practice as a partner in a Queens-based firm.
Landicino failed field sobriety tests and refused a chemical blood-alcohol test at the station, cops said. Efforts to reach Landicino on Thursday were unsuccessful.
Troopers ticketed Landicino and charged him with misdemeanor DWI for refusing the chemical test. Landicino was arraigned and released pending a later court date.
