Olean man arrested for DWI at twice the legal limit in Carrollton

On November 19, 2019, SP Olean Troopers arrested James H. Quirk Jr., 71, of Olean, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.

During a traffic stop on US Route 219 in the town of Carrollton, Troopers determined Quirk had been operating a vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. He failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Quirk was then arrested and transported to SP Olean, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.16% BAC.

Quirk was released with appearance tickets for Carrollton Town Court, where he is due to appear in December.
