Lancaster man arrested for DWI

A 53-year-old Lancaster man was arrested by Orchard Park Police Officer Gregory Sheppard on felony drunk driving and other charges for allegedly driving through a red light on Amanda Drive at Amelia Drive late Wednesday morning with his three-year-old grand daughter in his vehicle.

Mark A. Sypniewski was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, the Leandra’s Law drunk driving charge, passing a red light, having an open container of alcohol in his vehicle and littering. The officer reported seeing the suspect who has a prior alcohol-related arrest on his record, according to Orchard Park police, throw a beer can out his car window. He faces further proceedings in Orchard Park Town Court.
