Reckless driver charged with felony DWI in Wilson

WILSON — Niagara County Sheriff's deputies were called to Young Street about 9:30 p.m. Monday for a report of a driver who twice almost hit a pedestrian in a parking lot.

When deputies arrived, they spotted Craig L. Miller, 36, 2324 Maple Road, driving on the shoulder of Harbor Street. 

Deputies stopped Miller, who told them he had just left a bar and was heading to an address on Harbor Street. He appeared intoxicated and failed field sobriety tests.

Miller was charged and brought to the sheriff's office where a chemical test determined his blood alcohol content to be 0.15 percent. 

Miller was charged with driving on the shoulder of the road and is facing two counts of felony driving while intoxicated due to a prior DWI conviction in 2008 in St. Lawrence County.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
