A City of Newburgh man was arrested twice in less than three hours on Sunday. He was released both times under New York State’s Bail Reform Law.
At approximately 4:16am on Sunday, May 14, 2023, alert Troopers from the New York State Police reported observing a gray Ford F150 traveling east on Broadway. Troopers stopped the pickup truck after they observed it drifting into the opposite lane of traffic.
Troopers identified the driver as Tito Vinza-Vinza, age 38 of the City of Newburgh. As troopers spoke with Vinza-Vinza, they determined that he was impaired by alcohol. He was subsequently arrested.
Vinza-Vinza refused to be tested to determine his blood alcohol content, police said. He was charged with Driving While Intoxicated. He was issued an appearance ticket in accordance with the Bail Reform Law and released from police custody.
Then, at approximately 7:00am, a state trooper reportedly observed a gray Ford F150 violate a traffic law while traveling on First Street in the City of Newburgh. The trooper stopped the vehicle and identified the driver as Vinza-Vinza.
Troopers once again determined he was impaired by alcohol. He was subsequently arrested and found to have a blood alcohol content of .09%. He was issued another appearance ticket and released in accordance with the Bail Reform Law once again.
Vinza-Vinza is scheduled to return to the City of Newburgh Court on June 23, 2023, at 9:00am to face both charges.
