Cop pricked with syringe in a traffic-stop pat down

A Buffalo police officer conducting a pat down as part of an arrest was pricked in the palm of his right hand by a hypodermic needle on Friday. The officer, Patrol Lt. Jonathan Pietrzak, was taken to Erie County Medical Center for evaluation.

Police pulled over a vehicle with no inspection sticker at 5:57 p.m. Friday at LaSalle and Bailey avenues and proceeded to an arrest when they found the driver, Daryl A. Day-Nahs, 30, of Williamsville was driving with a revoked license and had a non-driver's identification due to a previous conviction for aggravated driving while intoxicated.

Day-Nahs was charged with driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, driving without an ignition interlock device, aggravated unlicensed operation, and criminal possession of a hypodermic needle.
