Portville accident leads to DWI charge

On August 11, 2019, SP Olean Troopers arrested Darrick A. Babb, 22, of Portville, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.

During their investigation of a one-car accident on Lillibridge Road in the village of Portville, Babb, the driver, was exhibiting obvious signs of intoxication. Troopers determined he had been operating a motor vehicle in an intoxicated condition. He failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Babb was arrested and transported to SP Olean, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.15% BAC.

Babb was issued an appearance ticket for Portville Village Court, where he is due to appear later this month.
