It is the fifth alleged DWI for a Utica man in just as many years.

29-Year old Jason Hammond was recently released from prison.  It did not take him long to find his way back to jail.

New Hartford Police say he hit a sign post with his car and then allegedly drove away.  Police say the concrete sign post Hammond hit was uprooted and overturned.   A witness helped police find Hammond and his vehicle nearby at Chanatry’s Market on French Road.

Following the administration of a breathalyzer test police say Hammond was driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .13%.

He is facing multiple charges including DWI, leaving the scene of an accident, and driving without an ignition interlock device.

Within the past five years Hammond has accumulated four arrests and five DWI’s.  Because his driving privileges had previously been revoked, Hammond was also charged with driving without a license.

He is currently being held at the Oneida County Jail without bail.
