Upstate New York Man Arrested Twice on Drunk Driving Charges

June 18, 2008

Authorities say they arrested an upstate New York man twice in less than an hour for driving drunk.

Oneida County deputies say Victor Sauerhafer II was initially stopped Monday at about 1:26 a.m. near Westmoreland for moving from his lane unsafely. After he was charged, he was released to another person. Deputies say Sauerhafer’s blood-alcohol level at the time was .25 percent _ more than triple the state’s legal limit of .08 percent.

About 30 minutes later, deputies spotted Sauerhafer’s vehicle in Rome and stopped him for failing to keep right.

Sauerhafer was charged a second time with driving while intoxicated after his BAC registered .23 percent. He was arraigned in Floyd Town Court and is being held in the Oneida County jail on $1,500 bail.
