On September 26, 2019, SP Machias Troopers arrested John W. Swanson, 52, of Ellicottville, NY for Driving While Intoxicated and Drinking Alcohol in a Motor Vehicle on a Highway.
During a traffic stop on Elizabeth Street in the village of Ellicottville, Troopers determined Swanson had been operating a vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. He failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Swanson was then arrested and transported to SP Machias, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.11% BAC.
Swanson was released with appearance tickets for Ellicottville Town Court, where he is due to appear in October.
