WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - A 21-year-old Yorktown woman was busted for allegedly drinking and driving over the weekend after crashing into a telephone pole.

At approximately 2:19 a.m. on Saturday, June 24, police were dispatched to Crompond Road, where there were reports of a one-vehicle crash involving a motorist that had struck  a telephone pole.

According to police, upon arrival, officers determined that the motorist, later identified as Yorktown resident Gabrielle Gjelaj, was allegedly driving while intoxicated at the time she struck the pole.

She was processed at Yorktown Police Headquarters and released on her own recognizance. She is due back in Yorktown Justice Court next month.
