Tow truck driver reports possibly drunken driver

WILSON – A tow truck driver alerted police to a possible drunken driver after being called to pull her car out of a ditch early Saturday.

Sheriff’s deputies said that Michelle R. Lesser, 42, drove her car into a ditch in the 4800 block of Lake Road around 5 a.m., reportedly while driving home from the Wilson House bar. Following the accident, Lesser called for a tow truck. After arriving at the scene, the tow truck operator phoned police.

Lesser, of Hosmer Road in Gasport, reportedly registered a 0.19 blood-alcohol level on a roadside test, according to deputies, and later refused to take the Breathalyzer test. She was charged with driving while intoxicated and moving from a lane unsafely.
