An Orchard Park man was charged Sunday morning with driving while intoxicated after police said they stopped him for speeding and found that he had a blood-alcohol content three times the legal limit.

Police stopped a 2015 GMC Sierra pickup truck at about 12:20 a.m. Sunday morning after it was seen speeding on South Buffalo Street in the village. The driver, 33-year-old Jonathan Pierowicz of Orchard Park, was arrested after showing "outward signs of intoxication" and failing several field-sobriety tests. A breathalyzer test at the police station found a BAC of 0.24 percent.

Pierowicz was charged with driving while intoxicated, aggravated DWI, speeding and other traffic violations. He was released after posting bail.
