Open bottle of cognac leads to driver’s arrest

A 33-year-old Dunlop Avenue man was arrested on driving violations after police spotted a half-filled bottle of cognac when they went to tell him he was illegally parked Sunday evening in the first block of Kermit Avenue.

Dwayne Lewis was arrested after a check showed his New York State driver’s license was revoked because he allegedly ignored 21 traffic tickets in recent years. Lewis was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, driving without a license and consuming alcohol in a motor vehicle.
