Lockport woman registers 0.28 BAC after traffic stop

A Niagara County Sheriff's deputy on patrol on Sunset Drive about 4 p.m. Monday stopped a woman who was driving with a blood alcohol content more than three times the legal limit.

The deputy said he spotted Patricia M. Burns-Naughton, 52, 424 High St., upper, backing out of a driveway awkwardly and followed her, noticing that she drove onto the shoulder of the road several times as well as cross the center line.

The deputy said Burns-Naughton failed to pull over when the patrol car's emergency lights were activated, eventually pulling into a gas station and parking very crooked in a spot.

The deputy said Burns-Naughton appeared intoxicated and she admitted to drinking two vodka and iced teas. After failing field sobriety tests, she was charged and taken into custody.

A chemical test administered at the sheriff's office found her blood alcohol content to be 0.28 percent.

Burns-Naughton was charged with aggravated DWI due to the high BAC, DWI and traffic infractions.
