Domestic Incident leads to DWAI Arrest for Mayville woman


On August 14, 2021 at approximately 11:30pm, Troopers out of SP Fredonia arrested Samantha J. Barron, 34, of Mayville for Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs.


Troopers responded to a 911 call about a verbal domestic dispute between a male and female in the Tops parking lot on Vineyard Drive in the town of Dunkirk.  When Troopers arrived on scene, they observed a vehicle speed off onto Vineyard Drive.  The vehicle was stopped and the operator was identified as Barron.

Barron was placed into custody and transported to Brooks Memorial Hospital where she consented to a blood draw after being interviewed by a Drug Recognition Expert.


Barron was processed at SP Fredonia before being released on an appearance ticket.
