City PD announces five arrests at DWI check point

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, crime.

The night of Tim McGraw concert at Darien Lake, the Batavia PD set up a sobriety check point on Pearl Street and made five arrests.

All five arrested had attended the concert, according to Chief Randy Baker.

Charged were:

  • Matthew Perry, 18, of Batavia, charged with DWI;
  • Geoffrey Howe, 28, of Auburn, charged with DWI, driving with a BAC of .18 or greater and aggravated unlicensed operation;
  • Matthew Malloy, 22, of Batavia, charged with DWI;
  • Christopher Vandusen, 38, of Kendall, charged with DWI;
  • Thomas Boughner, 28, of Spencerport, charged with DWI and open alcohol beverage container in a motor vehicle.

The traffic detail was supported through the Genesee County Stop DWI program.

Baker said the city PD will use check points and DWI patrols on holidays and throughout the summer to help combat drinking and driving.

Funny thing... a dozen years or so ago I lived in Lee County in Florida. The local sheriff refused to allow his deputies to serve as security at a rock concert, causing the concert promoter's beer license to be revoked. When asked why the sheriff allowed his deputies to serve at a country concert just a few weeks earlier (allowing beer to be served at that concert), he declared "rock fans drink too much, while country fans know how to hold their liquor and 'when to say when'." Glad to see the country fans who were at the Tim McGraw concert have finally caught up to the rock fans! ;-)
