NIAGARA FALLS — Ransomville

• CHARGED: Brian F. Kane, 48, 420 Baker Drive, Lewiston, was charged with DWI and failure to keep right about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, according to the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office. While on patrol, a deputy said he saw a Ford Explorer cross the center line multiple times while traveling west on Balmer Road and pulled the truck over near Dickersonville Road. Kane, the driver, appeared intoxicated and told the deputy he had taken a woman home from a Falls bar and was heading home himself. After failing field sobriety tests, Kane refused to take any others, the deputy said. He refused to submit to a breath analysis test but a preliminary breath test showed the presence of alcohol on his breath, the report said.
