LOCKPORT – A Grand Island man cut short his jury trial on a felony drunken driving charge in Niagara County Court Tuesday by accepting a plea offer to misdemeanor driving while intoxicated.

Timothy J. Homa, 29, of East River Road, is to be sentenced Feb. 26 by County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III.

Homa was arrested May 20 in North Tonawanda, after his vehicle became stuck after allegedly striking a planter box made of railroad ties in a parking lot on Manhattan Street.
