Houghton woman arrested for DWI in Ischua

On May 29, 2019, SP Olean Troopers arrested Lynlee A. Mezzano, 42, of Houghton, NY for Driving While Intoxicated, Drinking Alcohol in a Motor Vehicle on a Highway, and several traffic infractions.

Troopers investigating a report of an erratic driver observed Mezzano operating her vehicle on State Route 16 in the town of Ischua, almost striking the responding Trooper’s vehicle. During a traffic stop, Mezzano 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. Mezzano was then arrested and transported to SP Olean, where she refused to submit to a chemical breath test.

Mezzano was arraigned in Hinsdale Town Court and released on her own recognizance. She is due to appear in Ischua Town Court in July.
