SHERIDAN – A Fredonia man was charged with felony driving while intoxicated Friday after state troopers stopped him on Route 20 when he allegedly failed to dim his high beams, state police reported.

Rafael A Fuentes, 40, was traveling east in the town of Sheridan with his high beams activated and crossed the center and fog lines, police said.

He was later charged with DWI and aggravated DWI after his blood alcohol level was estimated at 0.20 percent.

Because Fuentes had been charged with felony DWI in the last decade, he faces an elevated charge in this case, police said.

Fuentes is scheduled to appear in Sheridan Town Court on Nov. 15.
