A Grand Island woman was charged with felony driving while intoxicated after being pulled over for driving infractions, Erie County sheriff’s officials said Saturday.

Holly D. Richards, 65, of Laurie Lane, posted a blood-alcohol content of .26 percent – more than three times the legal limit, deputies said,

Richards was pulled over Friday afternoon after turning onto Stony Point Road without signaling and failing to yield the right of way to another vehicle, sheriff’s officials said. The DWI charge was elevated to a felony because Richards has two DWI convictions, officials added.
