SCARSDALE, N.Y. - A Yonkers man was arrested over the weekend, when it was determined he was driving drunk being stopped by police for speeding in Scarsdale.

Shortly after 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 5, patrol officers conducting radar enforcement on Post Road spotted an Acura, driven by 38-year-old Felix Bisono, traveling 63 mph - well above the posted speed limit - prompting police to conduct a traffic stop.

During the stop, police said that there was a strong odor of alcohol on Bisono’s breath, and when prompted, he said he was coming from “Mamaroneck Avenue, White Plains.” When asked how much he had to drink, Bisono replied, “I did not have anything to drink. I’m driving.”

According to police, Bisono failed multiple Standardized Field Sobriety Tests and refused to submit to an also-sensor pre-screening test. Bisono was then arrested and transported to Scarsdale Police Headquarter, where he also refused to submit to a Datamaster DMT test to determine his level of intoxication.

Bisono was charged with a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated. He was also issued a violation for speeding and infraction for refusing to take a breath test. He was released on $250 cash bail into the custody of a friend. Bisono is due back in court later this year.
