Lawyer for Lockport man charged with DWI is probably right

A Niagara County Sheriff's deputy charged a man with DWI and drinking an alcoholic beverage in a vehicle Thursday night after spotting him driving erratically on Raymond Road.

On patrol about 8:30 p.m., the deputy saw Carl W. Clark, 42, 6035 S. Transit Road, Apt. 277, drifting over the fog line of the road and pulled him over. Clark appeared intoxicated and told the deputy he'd drank a beer in the car on his way home from work.

After failing field sobriety tests and tested positive on an alcohol breath screening test. After he was taken into custody, the deputy found an open 24 oz. Labatt Blue can of beer which was cold and two empty cans on the front passenger seat.

Clark told the deputy,"My lawyer from my previous DWI said that if I get another DWI, I'm (expletive)."

He refused to submit to a test to determine his blood alcohol content at the sheriff's office and was charged with DWI, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, open container law violation, driving without an interlock device and the traffic violation.

It wasn't stated when Clark was last charged with DWI.
