A Buffalo man was charged with driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed operation after patrol observed his vehicle speeding on Clinton Street. The vehicle also had a cracked windshield. Though he and his passenger, another Buffalo man, denied drinking, an Alcosensor test showed his blood alcohol content to be 0.14 percent. A check showed his license was suspended as well. Patrol also found a bag in the vehicle that contained $255.11 worth of property they believed to be stolen from three stores. Neither man was charged, however, as patrol was unable to prove that the items were stolen.
