Man Charged After Ellicottville Incident

An Ohio man was sent to jail after an incident on Route 219 in Ellicottville Friday night.

Sheriff’s deputies say 56-year-old Christopher Fogle of Westerville made an improper right turn, drove on the sidewalk near Valerian Way, and cut off oncoming traffic when driving back onto the road.

When deputies stopped him they saw a plastic cup with an alcoholic beverage in it in the center console of the vehicle. After giving him field sobriety tests, deputies charged Fogle with aggravated driving while intoxicated, because his blood alcohol content was more than .18, percent. They also charged him with consumption of alcohol in a motor vehicle and a number of traffic violations. His bail was set at $2,500.
