Amherst man charged with driving drugged after traffic stop

An Amherst man arrested early Thursday is accused of driving drugged and having three spring-loaded knives in a traffic arrest on Niagara Street, Buffalo police reported Friday.

Scott S. McClusky, 34, is charged with third-, fourth- and seventh-degree possession of controlled substances, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, possession of a controlled substance outside its original container and driving impaired by drugs.

The suspect, who was pulled over about 5:45 a.m. at Niagara and Ontario streets, was taken to the Erie County Medical Center after he said he ingested 30 narcotic pills earlier, according to Officer Christopher Schafer.

McClusky was found with the knives, narcotic pills and five bags of cocaine and cocaine residue in his vehicle, police said.

McClusky remained in Erie County Holding Center Friday night.
