Erie County sheriff’s deputies arrested two people for driving while intoxicated over the weekend, including a Brant man found unconscious behind the wheel of his vehicle.
Responding to an accident call on Southwestern Boulevard late Saturday, Deputy Neil Held found the driver, Frank A. Thompson, unconscious behind the wheel. After being treated by the Seneca Nation Volunteer Fire Department, Thompson was arrested for DWI. He refused to provide a breath sample to determine his blood-alcohol content, and sheriff’s officials said his license will be revoked.
On Sunday, while on patrol in the village of Akron, Deputy Simon Biegasiewicz stopped a car for failing to stop at a stop sign. The deputy then charged Rachel A. Miller, 37, of Akron, with DWI. Authorities said a chemical test determined that she had a blood-alcohol level of 0.16 percent, twice the legal limit.
Sheriff’s road patrols have arrested 67 people for DWI so far this year, officials added.
