Wrong-way driver spared, then stopped again and charged with DWI

An Oakfield man, who earlier was warned not to drive after going the wrong way on a one-way street, was later stopped again for drunk driving in the City of Tonawanda.

Christopher M. Oliveras, 25, of Lockport Road, had already been told to park his car Saturday night after he was pulled over for driving the wrong way. Later, at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday, Tonawanda police pulled him over again.

According to police, he told officers the second time that "I did park for a little while," and "I was drinking Budweisers and smoking marijuana." A container of marijuana was found in the vehicle's center console, and Oliveras registered a 0.10 percent blood-alcohol content.

He was charged with driving while intoxicated, driving while ability-impaired by drugs, operating a vehicle over 0.08 BAC, unlawful possession of marijuana, failure to obey a traffic-control device and illegal tinted windows. He was held on $250 bail.
