Allegany man arrested for DWI at over twice the legal limit in Olean

On January 26, 2020, SP Olean Troopers arrested Richard E. Gleason III, 37, of Allegany, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.

During a traffic stop on State Route 417 in the city of Olean, Troopers determined Gleason had been operating a vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. He failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Gleason was then arrested and transported to SP Olean, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.17% BAC.

Gleason was issued appearance tickets for Olean City Court, where he is due to appear in February.
