Lancaster woman stopped for speeding charged with DWI

A Lancaster woman is accused of drunken driving early Saturday in the City of Tonawanda after she was stopped for allegedly speeding and talking on her cellphone, police said Monday.

Jaquelyn J. Schiefer, 35, was pulled over about 12:30 a.m. on Delaware Street, Police Capt. Fredric Foels said in a news release.

Schiefer was charged with aggravated DWI after her blood-alcohol level was found to be 0.20 percent, 2½ times the legal limit. She also  was charged with using a cellphone while operating a vehicle, speeding, driving with an expired registration and failure to obey a traffic control device.

Several hours later a Tonawanda man was also charged with DWI after making a wide turn onto Young Street from Delaware Street. Robert J. Hurysz, 50, was arrested just before 3 a.m. and charged with DWI, no signaling and refusing to take a breath test, Foels said.
