CLARENDON, N.Y. (WIVB) - An Albion man with three DWI charges in the last six years is facing charges after he allegedly crashed his vehicle into a building overnight in Orleans County.
The Orleans County Sheriff's Office says they received a call around 6 a.m. on Wednesday that sometime during the night, the driver of a 2010 Hummer crossed over Mansfield Road at the intersection of Hindsburg Road in the Town of Clarendon and crashed into a building owned by Acme Powerwashing, Inc. The driver then fled on foot, and the damage was discovered by an employee who found the Hummer while coming to work Wednesday morning.
Around four hours later, deputies caught up to 26-year-old Brandon Kirby and charged him with second degree aggravated unlicensed operation, operating a vehicle without an ignition interlock device, leaving the scene of a property damage incident and failure to stop at a stop sign.
According to the Medina Journal-Register, Kirby was in court last October, when he pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of having committed his second DWI offense within the last five years and circumvention of an interlock device. The paper reports Kirby was also arrested for DWI in 2007 and 2010.
After being arraigned, Kirby was taken to the Orleans County Jail on $500 bail, and a parole detainer was placed against him.
