Friend bailing out man charged with DWI also arrested

Orchard Park police charged an Ohio man with driving while intoxicated late Saturday night, then arrested the woman who came to bail him out because she driving with a suspended license, police reported.

Officers said they stopped Joseph Case, 44, of North Bridgeville on Abbott Road near Big Tree Road at 11:50 p.m. for weaving out of traffic lanes.

Case failed field sobriety tests and submitted to a breath test at the police station where his blood alcohol level was shown to be 0.21 percent, more than 2½ times the legal limit, police said.

A marijuana pipe containing marijuana residue was also discovered in Case’s vehicle, police said. Case was charged with DWI, aggravated DWI, aggravated unlicensed operation, a traffic infraction and possession of marijuana. Bail was set at $500.

When Josephine Dixon, 46, of Flanders, N.J., arrived to bail Case out, police said they arrested her for driving with a license suspended for failing to answer summonses in the towns of Friendship and Wales. Bail was set at $200.

Case and Dixon eventually posted bail and were released to a licensed driver, police said.
