An Otsego County man faces multiple felony and misdemeanor charges following a traffic stop this week in Johnson City.

Around 9:25 p.m. Tuesday, officers from the Johnson City Police Community Action Team were on patrol and reportedly observed a vehicle driving erratically on Route 201.

Officers pulled over the driver, identified as 31-year-old Mark A. Mongillo of Unadilla.
