Oswego woman charged with felony DWI in Wheatfield

An Oswego woman on probation for a prior driving while intoxicated conviction was caught driving drunk in the Town of Wheatfield Friday, State Police reported.

Samanatha Wyman, 34, was charged with felony DWI, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, and operating a vehicle without the interlock device past DWI offenders are required to use, among other vehicle and traffic violations. Authorities said Wyman had been previously arrested for DWI within 10 years.

State troopers from Niagara County responding to a reckless vehicle 911 call from Amherst Police found Wyman in a store parking lot on Ward Road. Wyman smelled strongly of alcohol, and a breathalyzer test revealed that her blood alcohol content was at 0.15 percent, or nearly twice the legal limit.
