Man Facing Felony Charge Following Police Report of an Unconscious Male in Vehicle

On 07/19/14 at approximately 11:35 pm Officers of the Town of Seneca Falls Police Department arrested Steven W. Knight, age 29, of 9 Pleasant Street, Seneca Falls, NY for Felony DWAI-Drugs. The charge is a felony as Knight has a prior conviction for DWI within the past ten years. Members of the Seneca Falls Fire Department and Officers of the Seneca Falls Police Department responded to a complaint of an unconscious and unresponsive male sitting locked in his car in the parking lot of a town business. Shortly after police arrival, the male was responsive and conscious. The male was determined to be Knight. Officers found the vehicle Knight was in to be running and in gear. Further investigation by police showed that officers suspected him of being under the influence of drugs at the time of this complaint. He also refused to give a breath or blood sample following the arrest. Knight was arraigned in Seneca Falls Town Court before Judge Lafler and was committed to the Seneca County Correctional Facility on $10,000 Cash, $20,000 bond. Knight has to reappear in the Seneca Falls Town Court on Thursday July 24th, 2014 to answer the charge.
