Niagara County sheriff’s deputies log four DWI arrests

ROYALTON – Niagara County sheriff’s deputies made four drunken-driving arrests from late Thursady through early Saturday, including an Akron woman whose blood-alcohol level was almost four times the legal limit, authorities said.

Kelly L. Bruning, 35, who was stopped on Akron Road just after 8 p.m. Thursday for a lane violation, said she had been “driving around drinking vodka” from a pair of water bottles, deputies said. She posted a blood-alcohol content of 0.28 percent, deputies said, and was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated and drinking alcohol in a motor vehicle on a highway and moving from a lane unsafely.
