Twin Cleared of Murder Charge on Maui, Arrested in New York for DWI
A woman who was cleared of a murder charge on Maui earlier this year, was arrested in New York on Monday for aggravated DWI (driving while intoxicated) after almost striking a police vehicle, according to authorities.
Alexandria Duval (also known as Allison Dadow), 37, was arrested at around 4:25 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 15, 2016 by state police in Delaware County.
Police say Duval was observed failing to keep right, and drifted, “almost striking a New York State Police investigator” who was driving in the Village of Stamford. Police say she was then observed driving too closely to another vehicle, just ahead of her, and continued to cross over the center lines.
A responding trooper conducted a traffic stop and police determined that Duval’s blood alcohol concentration was 0.26%. Police say that while Duval agreed to a breath test, she refused to be fingerprinted, did not want to be photographed and was not compliant with police when they tried to determine her current residence.
Duval had a valid Hawaiʻi driver’s license and was not wearing seat belt at the time of the incident, according to police reports.
She was arraigned and was being held in lieu of $5,000 bail or $10,000 property bond at the Delaware County jail.
Her next court date on the misdemeanor count is set for Tuesday, Aug. 23, 2016.
Duval was involved in a deadly car crash in East Maui in May that claimed the life of her twin sister, Anastasia Duval (also known as Ann Dadow). The case drew widespread media attention with many news organizations sifting up information on the twin’s past as Yoga instructors on the mainland.
