A Grand Island man was charged with drunken driving, after the motorist following him called police.

James J. Seifert, 50, of Ransom Road, was charged with aggravated DWI, after a breathalyzer test showed his blood-alcohol content was 0.20 per cent, or more than twice the legal limit, State Police on Grand Island said.

The incident began at about 8 p.m. on Sunday, when a trooper responded to a call of a possible intoxicated driver being followed by the caller. The caller had stopped to speak to the driver – later identified as Seifert – at a gas station on Ransom Road and advised him not drive, State Police said.

The car took off anyway, followed by the caller.

Seifert was stopped on Greenway Road, where he was arrested and issued traffic tickets to appear in the Town of Grand Island Court at a later date.
