A 51-year-old Yorktown man is due in court on Wednesday to answer charges of drunken driving and having a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit, state police said. 

The man was arrested on Dec. 6 at 12:10 a.m. after receiving a complaint about an "erratically operated vehicle" on the Taconic State Parkway. His vehicle was stopped and police revealed the man was driving while intoxicated. 

He was charged with driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor.
