POLAND, N.Y. (WIVB) – Troopers say they discovered a driver was drunk after stopping him for having a rear tail light dangling down to the rear bumper of his vehicle.

David Baron of Jamestown was pulled over July 10 on I-86 in the Town of Poland. State Police say they could smell alcohol and after putting the 51-year-old through field sobriety tests, arrested him for DWI.

Baron’s BAC was reportedly .19 percent, which is twice the legal limit. He is charged with felony DWI due to a prior DWI conviction in the last 10 years.

He is due back in court at a later date.
