Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports the early morning arrest of a West Seneca man for DWI following a traffic stop in the City of Buffalo.
Erie County Sheriff's Deputy Dave Zamorek observed a vehicle driven by 27 y/o Nicholas C. Orlowski of West Seneca driving recklessly on S. Elmwood near Church St. in Downtown Buffalo around 12:50am. The vehicle continued on to the I-190 and was subsequently stopped there by Deputy Zamorek.
Upon further interview and field sobriety testing, it was determined that Orlowski was intoxicated. He was arrested and charged with DWI and numerous other traffic violations. He refused all further chemical breath testing.
The vehicle was towed with a DWI hold and Orlowski was later released to a third party on appearance tickets for the City of Buffalo Court at a later date.
This was the 51st DWI arrest by the Erie County Sheriff's Office this year.
