UPDATE Dec. 20, 2017: Cal Harris, who was acquitted last year after four murder trials, was arrested Friday night on a drunken-driving charge related to a property damage accident in Cortland County, according to state police, USA Today reports.
Troopers said they received a 911 call around 7:23 p.m. about a hit-and-run accident on Interstate 81 South in the Town of Preble. A GMC Sierra pickup truck allegedly sideswiped the 911 caller's vehicle while both were traveling on I-81.
Harris, 56, of Owego, was identified by troopers as the driver of the Sierra pickup. Troopers said he registered a blood alcohol content of 0.13 percent, which is above the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
Harris was charged with misdemeanor counts of driving while intoxicated, driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 percent or greater, and the following infractions: moving from lane unsafely, leaving the scene of a property damage accident and a license plate violation. He was ticketed to appear in Preble Town Court on Jan. 9.
