MAYVILLE – A 62-year-old Mayville man was arrested for aggravated driving while intoxicated when State Police were called to North Harmony about a traffic accident about 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

Scott C. Nelson was found to have allegedly drunkenly backed his car into a ditch on Chautauqua Avenue. After field sobriety tests he was taken to Jamestown where testing showed he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.23 per cent, nearly three times the state’s legal limit. Nelson was also ticketed for unsafe backing a vehicle, having an uninspected vehicle and having an open alcohol container in his vehicle. He was released to a third party and ordered to return to North Harmony Town Court for further proceedings in several weeks.
