A 23-year-old Chaffee man was arrested by Erie County Sheriff’s deputies on charges of driving illegally and drunken driving when he was stopped on Route 39 in the Town of Sardinia for alleged traffic violations about 10:45 p.m. Sunday.

Dylan J. Draper was charged with driving while intoxicated after it was found he had a blood alcohol reading of 0.17 per cent, more than twice the state’s legal limit, deputies said. Draper was also charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the first-degree after it was found his driver’s license was suspended because of pending alcohol charges, the deputies added.

His car was impounded and towed away. He faces proceedings in Sardinia Town Court.
