Six indicted by St. Lawrence County grand jury


CANTON— An Ogdensburg landlord who allegedly had a physical conflict with a tenant, then drove drunk, was indicted Tuesday by a St. Lawrence County grand jury.

Kevin S. McAllister, 44, of 508 Crescent St., was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated and two counts of driving while intoxicated, all class E felonies.

Mr. McAllister allegedly grabbed a tenant’s arm in front of two children before leaving the house, after arguing about the property’s condition on Feb. 19. The tenant then told deputies that Mr. McAllister was intoxicated.

Mr. McAllister was pulled over shortly after and tested at a 0.19 percent blood alcohol content while traveling on Horseshoe Road in Oswegatchie. Aggravated DWI charges apply when a BAC is measured over 0.18 percent.
