Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. reports the arrest of a 50-year-old Carmel man on Driving While Intoxicated charges.
On October 31, 2019, at approximately 4:26 p.m., Deputy Christopher Tompkins was dispatched by Putnam 911 to a report of a two car personal injury automobile accident on Route 6 in the area of Bridge Lane, in the Town of Southeast. When Deputy Tompkins arrived, Julian Chulo, the driver of one of the vehicles, was sitting on the shoulder of the road. Empty beer cans appeared to have been ejected from his car. Several people informed Deputy Tompkins that they removed Chulo from the vehicle because they observed what appeared to be gas leaking from the car and removed him for fear that the vehicle would catch fire. A subsequent investigation revealed that Julian Chulo age 50 of Carmel had been operating the vehicle in an intoxicated condition. He was removed from the scene via Brewster EMS to a local hospital where it was discovered Mr. Chulo sustained a fractured pelvis. The operator of the other vehicle sustained a minor injury.
Julian Chulo was charged with Driving While Intoxicated (Misdemeanor) and issued an appearance ticket to appear in the Town of Southeast Justice Court.
