Lockport man charged with drunken driving after he runs out of gas

WILSON – Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies charged a Lockport man with aggravated drunken driving after he was found to have a blood alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit.

Patrick J. Mack, 58, of Willow Street was charged just before 6 p.m. Saturday in the 2400 block of Beebe Road after deputies were dispatched to investigate a report of a disabled vehicle.

They found Mack next to his pickup and he told the deputies he had run out of gas. He also admitted he had been drinking alcohol earlier in the day, according to deputies.

Deputies said Mack appeared intoxicated and found that he had a blood alcohol level of 0.23 percent.
