 Niagara County Sheriff's Deputies were busy over the weekend with a number of driving while intoxicated arrests, including one of a Lockport man who was charged with having a blood alcohol level two and half times the legal limit.

58-year-old Michael Bucki of Old Beattie Road was charged last night at just after 6:30 p.m. when he was stopped for a traffic violation. Bucki's BAC was .20 percent and he was charged with aggravated DWI.

Also, 57-year-old Gary Cooped of Newfane was charged with DWI early yesterday morning after his car was found in a ditch on Coomer Road. Cooper failed some field sobriety tests, but would not take a chemical breath test.

And another vehicle in the ditch led to the arrest of 38-year-old Richard Winter of Lockport. Winter's car was found on Robinson Road and he was found to have a .12 percent BAC.

Finally, 69-year-old Donald Jeffords of Youngstown was stopped on Third Street in that village. Jeffords failed four sobriety tests, then told deputies, "I know I shouldn't be driving, but I'm not on a busy road." He was charged with DWI.
