Drunk driving suspect falls asleep at police station, ends up at hospital

WARSAW – A man charged with drunken driving fell asleep at a police station while waiting to take a breath test, hit his head on a table and had to be taken to the hospital.

Wyoming County Sheriff’s Deputy A.J. Previty took Richard D. Timian Jr. of Camillus back to the sheriff’s office after he was arrested for driving while intoxicated early in the morning on Dec. 3.

Timian, 47, had been driving a pickup on East Buffalo Street without any headlights or taillights, the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office said.

Once at the sheriff’s office, Timian fell asleep in a chair, fell over and hit his head. He was taken to Wyoming County Community Hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries.

In addition to vehicle and traffic violations, Timian was charged with first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, DWI and refusing to take a breath test. After he was arraigned in Warsaw Village Court, Timian was sent to the Wyoming County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail.
