Killbuck woman arrested for DWI in Portville
On October 26, 2019, SP Olean Troopers arrested Brenda J. Swihart, 49, of Killbuck, NY for Driving While Intoxicated and Refusal to Take a Breath Test.
Troopers responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven on State Route 417 in the village of Portville. Troopers located Swihart asleep behind the wheel of her vehicle, which was running with the headlights on. They determined Swihart had been operating a vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. She failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene and refused to submit to a preliminary breath screening. Swihart was then arrested and transported to SP Olean, where a chemical breath test revealed her to have a 0.09% BAC.
Swihart was released with appearance tickets for Portville Village Court, where she is due to appear later this month.
