A 20-year-old Eden man was arrested for drunken driving and other charges after Erie County sheriff’s deputies reported his car crashed into several mailboxes and then landed in a ditch on Mayer road in the Town of Boston about 6 p.m. Sunday.

Nicholas D. Ball was also charged with criminal mischief for destroying the mailboxes, operating with open alcoholic beverage containers in his car, imprudent speed, failure to maintain the roadway and refusing to submit to a breath screen device. He was taken to Erie County Medical Center by ambulance for treatment of minor injuries. He refused to submit to a blood test at the hospital. He was ordered to appear in Boston Town Court next month for further proceedings.
