On July 13th, 2019, Troopers out of SP Jamestown arrested Joshua Near, 30, of Bemus Point, for Driving While Intoxicated.  

Investigation revealed that while in an intoxicated condition, Near was doing burn-outs in his truck when he lost control and damaged the fence at a private residence on Route 430 in Bemus Point.  Near fled the scene, was located a short time later by the Trooeprs and placed under arrest after failing several SFSTs.  Near was transported to SP Jamestown where he provided a breath sample of .15.  Near was then processed, issued tickets and released.  Near is scheduled to appear in the town of Ellery Court on a later date.
