Lake George biker faces felony DWI charge

— A Lake George teenager was arrested Aug. 30 on a Felony charge of Aggravated Unlicensed Operation after he drove while intoxicated although his license was suspended from a previous DWI.

At about 1 a.m., a Warren County Sheriff’s patrol officer Kevin Conine observed a motorcycle driving on Walkup Road in Queensbury without lights on. Conine then observed the dirt bike crash after failing to stop at a stop sign.

Conine then subjected Daniel P. Canale, 19, of Pickle Hill Road in Lake George, to various tests for intoxication. Canale was mostly uninjured in the crash, but was determined to be intoxicated, police said, and was arrested for DWI. Canale refused to take a chemical test but was charged with common-law DWI.

A check of Canale’s driver’s license determined that he currently has a suspended license from a previous DWI. This DWI arrest was the second within five months for Canale, authorities said. Canale was also charged with his dirt bike being unregistered and uninsured. Canale was arraigned in Queensbury Town Court.
