DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED- FELONY


August 12, 2013- Sheriff Tim Howard reports while on patrol deputies observed a pickup truck driving erratically on Route 5 in Lackawanna.  After conducting a traffic stop on the truck the deputies observed indications that the driver was intoxicated.  After failing field sobriety tests, 61 year old Gary F. Nati of Concord, was arrested for DWI.

A subsequent license check revealed that Nati's driver's license was revoked for a prior DWI conviction.  He was taken to patrol headquarters in Chestnut Ridge Park where he submitted to a breath test.  The result of the test was a .13% BAC.  Due to a prior DWi conviction, Nati was charged with felony DWI and felony Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a motor vehicle.  He was also charged with several V& T law violations.  

Nati is scheduled to answer the charges in Lackawanna City Court.  This was the 207th DWI arrest made by the Erie County Sheriff's Office in 2013.
