Cattaraugus woman arrested for DWI at twice the legal limit in Ellicottville

On May 24, 2019, SP Ellicottville Troopers arrested Melanie Cummings, 40, of Cattaraugus, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.

While investigating a vehicle parked partially in the roadway on State Route 242 in the town of Ellicottville, Cummings, the operator, was exhibiting obvious signs of intoxication. She was determined to have been operating a motor vehicle in an intoxicated condition. She failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Cummings was then arrested and transported to SP Ellicottville, where a chemical breath test revealed her to have a 0.16% BAC.

Cummings was issued appearance tickets for Ellicottville Town Court, where he is due to appear in June.
