DWI suspect arrested a second time

WHEATFIELD – A man whom police said failed to install a court-ordered ignition interlock device following a 2013 drunken driving conviction, has been charged once again with driving while intoxicated.

Reid C. Bracken, 59, of Niagara Falls Boulevard, North Tonawanda, was pulled over just before 10 p.m. Friday after sheriff’s deputies said he failed to signal a turn from Cayuga Drive. He displayed several signs of intoxication and later registered a 0.17 reading on a Breathalyzer test, according to arrest reports.

Bracken had been ordered to install the interlock device, which prevents operation of a vehicle while in an intoxicated state, following a December, 2013 DWI conviction in Amherst, deputies said. His driver’s license also was revoked after that conviction, records showed. Bracken was charged with two counts of felony DWI, felony aggravated unlicensed operation, failure to signal and failing to install the interlock device.
