On July 26, 2020, Troopers received a complaint about an erratic operator traveling southbound on Center Road in the town of Sheridan. According to the complaint, the vehicle had left the roadway several times, ran stop signs and nearly caused several accidents by moving toward oncoming traffic.
Troopers located the vehicle off the roadway, in a grassy area near the intersection of Center Road and NY-83, attempting to back out and get back onto the road. As they interviewed Gustafson, Troopers noticed slurred speech, watery eyes and an odor of alcoholic beverage. Gustafson was placed under arrest after failing multiple standardized field sobriety tests and transported to SP Fredonia for processing. Gustafson recorded a .22% BAC.
Gustafson was issued traffic tickets returnable to the town of Arkwright court for a later date in August 2020.
