Published reports say the head of Rockland’s Republican party reportedly faces charges after he allegedly failed field sobriety tests and refused a Breathalyzer test during a traffic stop in Westchester in early December. The Journal News reports Lawrence Garvey was stopped by State Police for a broken brake light on 287 westbound in Elmsford, telling the Trooper he was on his way to New City after an event. The trooper allegedly reported Garvey smelled of alcohol, slurred his words and had bloodshot eyes. The Trooper also reportedly said he “performed poorly” on sobriety tests, with “poor coordination and failure to maintain balance.” The Journal News said Garvey’s driver’s license was suspended for 15 days following his January 17th arraignment. We reached out to Garvey for comment but did not hear back. He told the Journal News he was planning a wake and funeral for his father, who died earlier last week. Garvey has been the head of the Rockland County Republican Committee since 2014.
