Driver who reported damage to her car is charged with aggravated DWI

Police said they didn’t have to look far for the culprit when a City of Tonawanda woman called to report that her car had been vandalized.

Erin C. McDonald, 23, of Morgan Street told officers that her car was damaged early Saturday while in the Tonawanda Bowling Center parking lot, police said. However, police noticed that the damage was consistent with the vehicle being driven into a pole, and McDonald, who appeared intoxicated, then admitted that she had hit a pole on Colvin Boulevard and Brompton Road in the Town of Tonawanda, police added.

McDonald, who posted 0.20 blood-alcohol level, was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated.
