HARMONY –An Ashville man whose driver’s license was revoked due to a drunken driving conviction was charged early Wednesday with felony driving while intoxicated.

A Chautauqua County sheriff’s deputy pulled over Nicholas E. Weitschat on Blockville-Watts Flats Road, the sheriff’s office said.

Weitschat, 25, was convicted of DWI in the last 10 years. In addition to felony DWI, he was charged with first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, operating a vehicle without an ignition interlock device, as well as not having a front license plate, driving an uninspected vehicle and unlawful possession of marijuana.

After being arraigned in Clymer Town Court, Weitschat was remanded to the Chautauqua County Jail without bail.
