Deputies: Man still drunk two hours after crash


PERRY, N.Y. (WIVB) – Deputies say two hours after a crash, an alleged drunk driver still had a BAC of .14 percent.

The Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office was called to Route 20A and Suckerbrook Road in the Town of Perry around 4 a.m. last Thursday after witnesses reported a one-car accident. By the time deputies arrived, the driver had walked away.

Additional law enforcement officers were called to help look for the possibly injured driver, but it wasn’t until 6 a.m. that deputies were informed he was at home.

Deputies say Nathan Hopkins was still under the influence when he was arrested for DWI and that his BAC was .14 percent. He’s also charged with speed not reasonable and prudent, failure to stop at a stop sign, and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.

The 22-year-old Warsaw man is due back in Town of Perry Court at a later date. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
