Chautauqua County sheriff deputies charged Brad T. Bettis, 45, of Frisbee Road, Cassadaga, with felony driving while intoxicated and aggravated DWI after deputies found his vehicle off the road on Slide Fenner Road in the Town of Ellery at 5:15 p.m. Sunday.
Deputies said when they located Bettis' vehicle off the road he appeared to be intoxicated. He also was charged with failure to maintain a lane and refusal to take a pre-screen alert test.
Bettis had a prior conviction of driving while intoxicated in 2009, making a second charge of DWI a felony arrest, deputies said.
Bettis was arraigned in the Town of Ellery Court and then released to a sober party.
