Driver posts high alcohol reading after Eden chase

A former Derby resident was arrested for drunken driving about noon Friday after a short pursuit on Route 20, Eden police said.

Jeffrey R. Hein, 50, posted a blood-alcohol content of .33 percent, more than four times the legal threshold for intoxication.

Hein, of Aliso Viejo, , Calif., lost his New York driving privileges after a 2011 DWI conviction in Lewiston. He was charged with aggravated felony driving while intoxicated, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, suspended registration and unlicensed driving, because his California license is suspended over an insurance matter.
