Grand Island Man Arrested for DWI After Traffic Stop

Sheriff Timothy B Howard reports the early morning arrest of a Grand Island man for DWI following a traffic stop in the Town Grand Island. Erie County Sheriff's Deputy Tim Cannan was on patrol on Grand Island around 1:00am when he stopped a vehicle driven by 29 year old Gino J. Lamarco of Carl Rd., Grand Island for a speeding violation. Upon further investigation and field sobriety testing, Lamarco was found to be intoxicated.

Lamarco was arrested and charged with DWI and other traffic violations. Lamarco submitted to a chemical breath test which registered a reading of .15% BAC, almost twice the legal limit. Lamarco's vehicle was towed from the scene and he was later released to a third party on appearance tickets to the Town of Grand Island at a later date.

This was the 66th DWI by the Erie County Sheriff's Road Patrol this year.
