A 39-year-old East Amherst man was arrested Wednesday evening and charged with driving while intoxicated after his car landed in a ditch on Transit Road at Lapp Road in the Town of Clarence, Erie County Sheriff’s deputies said.

A deputy concluded that the driver, Ryan Garrigan, was drunk, but Garrigan refused to submit to a breath test to determine his blood alcohol content. He was arrested and charged with DWI.

Garrigan was released on appearance tickets to return to Clarence Town Court at a future date.
