Allegany man arrested for DWI at over twice the legal limit

On November 24, 2019, SP Olean Troopers arrested Ben A. Yehl, 34, of Allegany, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.

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

Yehl was released with appearance tickets for Allegany Village Court, where he is due to appear in December.
