Man Charged After Debris
From Pickup Lands on Road

After stuff started flying out of a Cattaraugus County man’s pickup truck, he was arrested for driving while intoxicated.

State police were called to a complaint of debris in the road on Route 16 in Machias on Sunday and, when they arrived on the scene, they found a volunteer firefighter directing traffic around items that had fallen out of a pickup truck. They didn’t say what the items were.

They did say the driver of the pickup, 57-year-old Patrick Paugh of Machias, had a blood alcohol content of .09 percent. He is scheduled to appear in Town of Machias Court.
