Wellsville accident leads to DWI charge for Scio man
On September 27, 2019, SP Amity Troopers arrested Tyler V. LeVasseur, 18, of Scio, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.
During their investigation of a one-car accident on Truax Road in the town of Wellsville, LeVasseur, 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. LeVasseur was arrested and transported to SP Amity, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.10% BAC.
LeVasseur was arraigned in Wellsville Town Court where he was remanded to the Allegany County Jail in lieu of $250 bail or $1,000 bond. He is due to reappear in that court in October.
