Buffalo Resident Arrested for DWI


Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports the arrest of a Buffalo resident for Driving While Intoxicated by Sheriff’s Patrols on Thursday morning.

While on patrol on Pear Street at about 11:20AM, Deputy Adam Day arrested George L. Lewis (54) of Buffalo and charged him with DWI, Unsafe Start, and Operating with Open Alcoholic Beverages after stopping his car for the Unsafe Start.  A breath test revealed his blood alcohol content to be .15%, almost twice the legal limit.  Lewis was processed and released on appearance tickets for Buffalo City Court.

This was the 67th arrest for DWI by Sheriff’s Patrols in 2014.
