What started out as a car going over an embankment situation turned bad for the driver quickly.  A 22-year old Jefferson, NY man is now facing multiple felony weapons charges as well as a DWI.

On September 18, 2021, the New York State Police in Cobleskill arrested 22-year-old Schoen Stocks of Jefferson for Criminal Possession of a Weapon 3rd degree (D felony), two counts of Possessing a Large Capacity Ammo Feeding Device (A misdemeanor), Possession of a Loaded Firearm in a Motor Vehicle (misdemeanor) and Driving While Intoxicated (misdemeanor).

State Police responded to State Route 10 in Jefferson shortly before midnight on Friday for a report of a one-car motor vehicle crash. When they arrived, Troopers located a vehicle down an embankment and the driver, Schoen, being treated at the scene for minor injuries. A Trooper interviewing Schoen could smell the odor of alcohol coming from his breath and observed signs of impairment. Schoen was administered roadside sobriety tests, which he failed, and was taken into custody. Further investigation at the scene revealed that Schoen was in possession of two large capacity magazines and a loaded, unregistered assault rifle was located in his vehicle.

Schoen was transported to SP Cobleskill where he provided a breath sample of .16%B.A.C. He was released on an appearance ticket and is due in Jefferson Town Court on October 4, 2021.
