Scio man arrested for DWI in Wellsville

On September 7, 2019, SP Amity Troopers arrested Phillip H. Fanton, 76, of Scio, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.

During a traffic stop on Genesee Parkway in the village of Wellsville, Troopers determined Fanton had been operating a motor vehicle in an intoxicated condition. He was unable to perform standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Fanton was then arrested and transported to SP Amity, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.13% BAC.

Fanton was released with appearance tickets for Wellsville Village Court, where he is due to appear later this month.
