A 40-year-old Corfu man was arrested Tuesday afternoon on charges of drunken driving and traffic infractions on Main Street in the Town of Newstead.

William J. Johnson was stopped by Erie County Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Kuhlmey at Main and Millgrove Road at about 4 p.m. after reports came in about a man driving recklessly through the town.

After Johnson gave a blood-alcohol breath test of 0.16 percent, twice the legal limit, he was charged with driving while intoxicated and traffic infractions.

After a third party arrived for him, he was allowed to leave the sheriff’s Alden substation but faces Newstead Town Court proceedings in two weeks.
