On July 28th, 2022, New York State Troopers arrested Matthew Utegg, 57, of Brocton, for Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated.
The Troopers responded to the intersection of Route 20 and North Road in Fredonia for a report of a motor vehicle accident. Investigation revealed that Utegg was driving west on Route 20 when he attempted to turn onto North Road but instead exited the roadway and struck the guardrail and the stop sign, rendering his vehicle undriveable. Utegg was placed under arrest after failing several SFSTs and transported to SP Fredonia where he provided a breath sample of .25. Utegg was then processed and issued traffic tickets. Utegg is scheduled to appear in the town of Pomfret Court next month. Utegg was not injured in the accident.
