    BENNINGTON — A Hoosick Falls, N.Y., man was arraigned on Monday after police said he was found to have a blood-alcohol content level almost three times the legal limit shortly after going through the drive-through at a local fast food restaurant on Jan. 10.

    Duvan A. Leblanc, 37, of Hoosick Falls, was charged in Bennington criminal court with two felony counts of driving under the influence of alcohol. According to court records, he was previously convicted of the same charge twice in 2005 in May and December.

    In an affidavit, Bennington Police Officer Andy Hunt said he was called to the McDonalds restaurant on Northside Drive in Bennington on Jan. 10 around 10:20 p.m. Employees at the restaurant had called to report what appeared to be an intoxicated man who had used the drive-through window.

    When Hunt arrived, he found Leblanc in the car with the engine running, he said.

    According to the affidavit, Leblanc’s blood-alcohol content was measured at 0.224 percent at 11:20 p.m. The legal limit in Vermont is 0.08 percent.

    Leblanc, who pleaded innocent, was released without bail but ordered to observe a 24-hour curfew at the Bennington home of his girlfriend.
