WESTMINSTER -- A Shirley man was arrested on a drunk-driving charge early Saturday morning after he was stopped for a marked-lanes violation on Route 2, according to Trooper John Daigle.

Gabriel Garbarz, 55, of 80 Townsend Road, is charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and a marked-lanes violation.

According to Daigle, Garbarz was traveling on Route 2 east just west of Exit 24 around 1:40 a.m. when the 2011 Ford 150 pickup truck he was driving was stopped by Trooper Blake Bearden for a marked-lanes violation.

Bearden subsequently placed Garbarz under arrest for allegedly operating under the influence of alcohol, Daigle said.
