The Erie County Sheriff’s deputies reported two DWI arrests late Tuesday and early Wednesday.

Daniel Roberts, 32, of Elma was charged with felony DWI according to deputies responding to a complaint shortly after 10 p.m. Tuesday on North Blossom Road in the Town of Elma.

Deputies Richard O’Neil and John Szczepanski reported Roberts to be in an intoxicated state with his vehicle on North Blossom. Roberts, who was taken into custody after a brief scuffle, refused a chemical breath test and was charged with felony DWI because of a prior conviction in October 2005, deputies said.

Criminal charges are pending against Roberts, who also faces numerous vehicle and traffic charges.

Roberts was taken to Elma Town Court where he was arraigned and remanded to the Erie County Holding Center, deputies said.

Deputies on patrol around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday in the Town of Newstead said they stopped a car on Main Street after receiving a complaint the vehicle was being operated in a reckless fashion.

Deputy Gene Nati assisted by Akron police identified the driver as Tatiana Makarevic, 45, of the Town of Alabama.

Makarevic was taken into custody after failing field sobriety tests, reported deputies, who took her to the Clarence substation where a chemical breath test was administered.

Makarevic’s BAC was determined to be .17 percent and she was charged with DWI.

Makarevic was released to a third party and was issued an appearance ticket returnable to the Town of Newstead Court.
