Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports the early evening arrest of a Grand Island woman for DWI.
Erie County Sheriff's Deputies Chris Soluri and Dan Milbrandt responded to E. River Rd. in Grand Island about 8pm Monday night for a report from the Grand Island Fire Dept that 64 y/o Pamela D. Detig had just drove up to their training area, which was next door to Detig's residence and began yelling, arguing and interfering with the Fire Dept. personnel and their training.
Deputies arrived on location and upon further investigation, found her to be intoxicated. She was arrested and charged with DWI.
Detig submitted to a chemical breath test which resulted in a .15% BAC, almost twice the legal limit.
Detig's vehicle was towed from the scene and she was later released to a family member with appearance tickets for Grand Island Court at a later date.
This was the 59th DWI by the Erie County Sheriff's Office this year.
