Jeffrey D. Bresett, 45, of Ogdensburg, was charged by St. Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies Monday, with second-degree unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and reckless driving following a traffic incident on Route 68 in Canton. Police allege Bresett ingested a compressed gas inhalant that “compromised his driving ability and consciousness.” Bresett reportedly drove his vehicle off the roadway into guide rails.
