CASSADAGA, N.Y. (WIVB) - State Police say a drunk driver was the cause of a water outage in the Village of Cassadaga Monday evening.
Mayor Leeann Lazarony told News 4 the water was shut off in the village while crews repaired a fire hydrant that was struck around 3:15 p.m. on Dale Drive. Police say the hydrant was hit by 20-year-old Mark Banse-Fay, who then abandoned the vehicle at the local boat launch.
Troopers tracked down Banse-Fay and say he admitted hitting the hydrant. Police say he failed field sobriety tests and charged him with DWI, leaving the scene of a property damage accident and moving from lane unsafely.
He's due back in court at a later date.
