A Clarence man who failed to stop for a school bus that had its red lights on was pulled over by a state trooper Thursday who charged him with driving while intoxicated, state police said.
When a trooper stopped Kevin Herberger, 54, the trooper noticed the smell of alcohol from inside the car, state police said. The trooper asked Herberger to perform several field sobriety tests, which he failed, according to state police. He was transported to the state police barracks in Clarence where a breath test indicated his blood alcohol content level was .15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit for drinking and driving. Herberger was issued apperance tickets to appear in court at a later date.
State police reminded drivers to come to a full stop for school buses when they have their emergency lights on and stop signs displayed.
