Traffic stop leads to repeat DWI offender

NIAGARA FALLS – A man with a history of drunken driving and a revoked license was charged with felony drunken driving at 8 p.m. Sunday in the 500 block of 22nd Street, police said.

Aaron Potter, 30, of Linwood Ave, was charged with failure to obey a traffic control device, aggravated unlicensed operation, no inspection, no registration, and no insurance.

He was also charged with felony driving while intoxicated because he has a previous DWI conviction.

Police described Potter as uncooperative and he faced an additional charge for refusing to be screened.

After being booked Potter complained of back pain and illness that appeared to be related to intoxication. He was taken by ambulance to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center for treatment, according to police.
