TUSCARORA RESERVATION – A passerby who stopped to help a truck driver who had just driven into a ditch, just after 6 p.m. Sunday at 4821 Blacknose Spring Road, told Niagara County sheriff’s deputies that the driver was clearly intoxicated.

Tammy Ann Treichler, 51, of Upper Mountain Road, Sanborn was charged with disorderly conduct for repeatedly swearing at deputies, also moving from a lane unsafely, drinking alcohol in a motor vehicle and driving while intoxicated.

The Good Samaritan said she saw the truck had gone off the road and stopped to see if the driver needed help. She said Treichler fell as she got out of the truck, could barely walk and smelled like alcohol.
