Three people were arrested for aggravated driving while intoxicated – for having a blood-alcohol level of at least 0.18 percent – in separate incidents on Western New York roadways Sunday.
Erie County sheriff’s deputies made two of the arrests, while the State Police made the other.
The first occurred at about 1:10 p.m., when Trooper Jeffrey Curtis of the State Police at Jamestown charged Raymond Westbrook, 43, of Pittsburgh, with aggravated DWI and two counts of Leandra’s Law. Westbrook was accused of recording a 0.19 percent blood-alcohol level and having his two minor children in the vehicle. Westbrook was stopped when State Police said he drove through a road check on Waite Corners Road in Sherman.
Erie County Sheriff’s Deputy Jonathan Hanna made the second arrest, after responding to a citizen complaint of a vehicle driving erratically southbound on Route 219 in the Town of Concord at about 7:20 p.m. Hanna, with the help of two other deputies, charged Jennifer Buckley, 48, of Grand Island, with aggravated DWI for registering a 0.26 percent blood-alcohol level.
Then shortly after 10 p.m., Sheriff’s Deputy Gene Nati responded to a vehicle in a ditch on Salt Road at Clarence Center Road in the Town of Clarence. Deputies, working with State Police, charged Kurt Meyers, 38, of Clarence, with aggravated DWI, accusing him of having a blood-alcohol level of 0.20 percent.
All three drivers were accused of having blood-alcohol levels more than twice the legal limit.
