PERRY, N.Y. (WIVB) - Deputies pulled over a driver they knew had a warrant out for his arrest and discovered he was intoxicated behind the wheel.
The Wyoming County Sheriff's Office reports Andrew Kujawski was involved in a domestic dispute in the Village of Castile on Sunday with a woman who has an order of protection against him. A warrant was issued for the 25-year-old's arrest, so deputies pulled him over later that night when they spotted him driving on Lake Street in the Village of Perry.
Deputies say Kujawski was intoxicated, and placed him under arrest. Now in addition to charges of second degree criminal contempt and second degree harassment, Kujawski is charged with felony aggravated DWI for having prior DWI convictions.
After being arraigned, he was taken to the Wyoming County Jail on $15,000 bail.
