POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- A Poughkeepsie man who was driving a vehicle with a headlight out tried to flee from police during an attempted traffic stop on Sunday.

Frederick Mann, 31, was arrested after he attempted to flee when Sgt. Neil Stuart with the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office attempted to stop him around 2:15 a.m. on Washington Street in the City of Poughkeepsie, said Capt. John Watterson.

Following a brief pursuit, Mann stopped and was taken into custody. Once stopped, an investigation revealed he was intoxicated and he was driving on a suspended license from a prior DWI within the past 10 years, Watterson added.

In addition, Mann was operating a vehicle without an interlock device, Watterson said.

He was charged with felony DWI; aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle; operating a vehicle without an interlock device; fleeing a police officer, and various traffic violations.

He is being held at the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond.
