Driver calls 911 to report he’s drunk

City of Tonawanda police arrested a Buffalo man after he called 911 to report he was driving drunk and had a flat tire on Twin Cities Memorial Highway early Saturday.

Eugene W. Hicks, 34, of Berkshire Avenue, was charged with DWI and multiple traffic infractions at 3:13 a.m. Saturday. 

Hicks allegedly admitted to a 911 dispatcher he was intoxicated and his car had blown a tire, leaving him stranded. When officers arrived at the man’s location they found he had actually veered off the highway and struck several road signs, including a caution sign warning of a curve ahead — a turn he failed to negotiate.

One of the vehicle’s tires had been pulled off during the crash.

Hicks’ blood-alcohol content was measured at 0.17 percent. He was held for court.


HARASSMENT: Edward Farley III, 42, of Minerva Street, was charged Friday with second-degree burglary, criminal mischief, third-degree menacing, custodial interference and endangering the welfare of a child following a domestic dispute. He was held for court.
