Olean man arrested for DWI after Freedom crash
On November 14, 2022, SP Machias Troopers arrested Alexander W. Johnson, 35, of Olean, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.
Troopers investigating a one-vehicle accident at the intersection of State Routes 98 and 243 in the town of Freedom observed Johnson exhibiting obvious signs of intoxication and determined he had been operating a motor vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. He refused to perform standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Johnson was arrested and transported to SP Machias, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.13% BAC.
Johnson was released with appearance tickets for Freedom Town Court, where he is due to appear in December.
