VERNON, N.Y. -- New York State Police said a Vernon man was driving drunk when he ran over and killed a dog on Wednesday.
According to investigators, Micah Wilson, 39, was driving on Graves Road near a woman walking her dog. Troopers said the woman tried to get Wilson's attention to slow down, but he still ran into the dog.
The woman apparently followed Wilson's vehicle until she found it parked in a driveway and called 911. When police arrived to the scene, Wilson refused to submit to a chemical test.
He has been charged with DWI and leaving the scene of an accident involving injury to an animal.
