MAYVILLE – A 29-year-old Sherman man was arrested by Chautauqua County sheriff’s deputies and state police Monday morning on felony drunk driving charges after his frightened wife called to say she feared he had gone out with a shotgun.

Michael A. Vanevery of 3142 North Road, was arrested without incident when his car was stopped near his home about 7:35 a.m. No weapons charges were lodged but Vanevery was remanded to the Chautauqua County Jail on felony charges of driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed driving. He was found to be driving with a license revoked after a DWI conviction several years ago. He faces further proceedings in Sheridan Court later in the week.
