A 30-year-old Depew man with two children, aged five and nine, in his car was arrested by Erie County sheriff’s deputies on Main Street at Sandridge Road in Alden about 8:45 p.m. Wednesday and charged with driving while impaired by drugs and aggravated driving while intoxicated with children under the ages of 15, the so-called Leandra’s Law.

After a two-car accident at that intersection David Wilczak was arrested, allegedly admitting he had used heroin earlier in the day. He refused to take a breath test on the DWI charge and was taken to the Erie County Holding Center after the two children were turned over to other adults, investigators said.
