Genesee County sheriff’s deputies arrested a Batavia man Saturday near his home and charged him with felony counts of driving while intoxicated and of aggravated DWI.

James Michael Alvut, 48, of Putnam Road, had a passenger in the car under 16, and had a previous DWI conviction, resulting in the felony charges, deputies said, adding that Alvut refused a blood-alcohol test.

Alvut was arraigned in Batavia Town Court and taken to the Genesee County Jail on $10,000 bail.
