A 34-year-old Depew man was arrested by State Police on felony drunken driving and traffic violation charges after he drove into a ditch on Bullis Road in the Town of Elma after allegedly striking a utility pole and several trees Wednesday evening.

John C. Feness was found to have a blood-alcohol reading of 0.24 percent, three times the state’s legal limit, police said. He was found to have had a DWI conviction in the last ten years, making his arrest a felony. He was ordered to appear Feb. 5 in Elma Town Court.
