On January 17, 2020, SP Amity Troopers arrested Eric J. Smith, 40, of Alfred, NY for Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated - BAC Over 0.18% and Driving While Intoxicated - Previous Conviction Within Ten Years.
During their investigation of a one-car accident on State Route 244 in the town of Ward, Smith, the driver, was exhibiting obvious signs of intoxication. Troopers determined he had been operating a motor vehicle in an intoxicated condition. He refused to complete standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Smith was then arrested and transported to SP Amity, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.21% BAC.
Smith was released with appearance tickets for Ward Town Court, where he is due to appear in February.
