Niagara Falls woman charged with DWI after tailgating cop

A Niagara Falls woman who almost rear-ended a City of Tonawanda police cruiser early Saturday morning was charged with driving while intoxicated after apparently having what she claimed were eight alcoholic beverages at a local bar.

Kaitlyn M. Kiszewski, 25, of Niagara Falls Boulevard, was pulled over after driving 47 miles per hour in a 30 mph zone. She was also tailgating another police car going into the same direction on Main Street in Tonawanda.

She acknowledged "reckless driving" after she was stopped, according to police, and failed all field tests. She told officers she had finished eight "jack-and-cokes" at the bar. She was later found to have a blood-alcohol content of 0.15.

In addition to DWI, she was also charged with operating a motor vehicle over 0.8, following too closely, speeding and failing to use a designated lane after a traffic stop on Main Street. She was held on $250 bail.
