Farmersville woman arrested for felony DWI in Freedom
On May 3, 2019, SP Machias Troopers arrested Barbara A. Cook, 49, of Farmersville, NY for Driving While Intoxicated With a Previous Conviction Within Ten Years.
Troopers investigating a report of a one-vehicle accident on Delevan-Elton Road in the town of Freedom, observed Cook, the operator of the vehicle, exhibiting obvious signs of impairment. She admitted to having consumed alcohol prior to operating the vehicle. Cook subsequently failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. She was arrested and transported to SP Machias, where a chemical breath test revealed her to have a 0.17% BAC.
Cook was arraigned in Freedom Town Court, where she was released under supervision of the Cattaraugus County Probation Department. She is due to reappear in Freedom Town Court later this month.
