NIAGARA FALLS —

Officers reported Brown appeared intoxicated at the scene, but refused to submit to any field sobriety tests or a breath test because he said he wasn’t driving his vehicle. He was transported to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center for treatment.

Officers reported finding the windshield to the vehicle behind the garage on the property and reportedly found hairs matching the head of the accident victim in the windshield.

Brown was charged with second-degree vehicular assault, driving while intoxicated, leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident, evidence tampering and traffic violations.
