TICONDEROGA -- A Moriah man allegedly speeding down Chilson Hill was arrested for felony DWI Monday night.

Ticonderoga Town Police said they stopped Matthew P. Fernandez, 22, of 195 Fisk Road, Moriah for speeding westbound on Route 74 about 10:15 p.m.

After he was stopped, police asked Fernandez to take a blood-alcohol test, which exceeded .08 percent, the state's legal limit for driving while intoxicated.

Because he has a previous DWI conviction in the last 10 years, Fernandez was charged with felony DWI. Police also cited him for speeding.

He was arraigned in Ticonderoga Town Justice Court and released on his own recognizance.
