TOWN OF LOCKPORT – A town man who drove into a ditch off Old Beattie Road early Saturday had a blood-alcohol level more than three times the legal limit, sheriff’s deputies reported.

Jason S. Yalowich, 32, of Knotty Pine Drive, clipped a utility police after leaving the road near Rapids Road shortly before 4 a.m., deputies said. A Breathalyzer test later determined his blood-alcohol level to be 0.25, well above the legal limit of 0.08.

Yalowich was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, moving from a lane unsafely and having no registration or inspection.
