Four in Niagara charged with DWI

The Niagara County Sheriff's Office arrested four men in separate incidents on charges of driving while intoxicated, including one man who had only three wheels left on his car after several accidents. All the arrests took place late Friday or early Saturday.

Robert Prentice, 50, of Newfane, was arrested as he tried to get his key in the front door of his home.

Law enforcement officials believe Prentice's vehicle struck a house on Lockport-Olcott Road, hit two trees in Olcott's Krull Park and struck a guardrail, sailboat displays, another car and a sign before his arrest.

Prentice has been charged with three counts of leaving the scene of an accident, felony DWI, felony aggravated unlicensed operation, two counts of failure to keep right and failure to use a designated lane.

Just after 1 a.m., deputies arrested Chad Paron, 41, of Niagara Falls after they said they observed his vehicle swerving on Williams Road in Wheatfield. Paron was charged with DWI, felony aggravated unlicensed operation and failure to keep right.

About 3 a.m., deputies arrested Stephan Wroblewski, 39, after he fled from police, resulting in a chase through the North End of Lockport.

When they finally caught up with him in front of 231 Church St., Wroblewski allegedly fought with the deputies trying to make the arrest.

Wroblewski was charged with DWI, fleeing from police, failure to yield, resisting arrest and reckless driving.

At 3:24 a.m., deputies pulled over a vehicle driven by Roger D. Wiepert, 46, of Ransomville, on Military Road in the Town of Niagara. Wiepert was charged with aggravated DWI and failure to keep right. He registered a blood-alcohol level of .22, almost three times the legal limit of .08.

Each suspect was remanded to Niagara County Jail.
