A 20-year-old East Aurora man was arrested on drunk driving and other charges after Erie County sheriff’s deputies confirmed he had abandoned his pickup truck and walked home after his truck struck two mailboxes and rolled over at about 3 a.m. Friday off Stolle Road in the Town of Marilla.

Kyle D. Gauthier was arrested at his Girdle Road home shortly after the accident.

Gauthier, who was found to be intoxicated and complained of head pains, was taken by ambulance to Erie County Medical Center for a medical checkup. He then was formally charged with driving while intoxicated, leaving the scene of a property damage accident and a number of traffic infractions. He is to appear in Marilla Town Court in several weeks.
