According to a news release from the New York State Police, the 37-year-old Mutnansky was observed by troopers on the evening of Aug. 7 driving a gray Toyota Camry that was failing to stay in its lane on East Avenue.

Troopers conducted a motor vehicle stop and interviewed Mutnansky. The release stated that he “illustrated signs of impairment’’ and admitted to drinking alcohol earlier in the evening.

He was arrested for driving while intoxicated after troopers administered several standard field sobriety tests.

A later test found Mutnansky to have a 0.16 blood alcohol concentration; the legal limit in New York is 0.08.

He is scheduled to appear in the City of Saratoga Court on Friday.

“At the present time, on the advice of counsel, I have no comment,’’ Mutnansky wrote in an e-mail to the Globe. “As the process plays itself out I will address it at the appropriate time.’’

Mutnansky was on the air Monday morning, cohosting the “Kirk and Callahan Show,’’ on which he is a rotating third host. He also hosts evening programming on WEEI, including the Red Sox pregame show.

WEEI executive Phil Zachary did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
