East Amherst man charged with DWI

An East Amherst man was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated Sunday after he was pulled over on Millersport Highway in the Town of Amherst for traffic violations, according to State Police.

Daniel J. Gestwick, 48, of Primrose Lane, had been stopped for failure to keep right, failure to signal and changing lanes unsafely when officers noticed a strong smell of alcohol on his breath, State Police said.

After a field sobriety test, he was taken to the State Police station in Lockport, where he registered 0.18 percent on a breath test, according to State Police.

Gestwick was released without bail pending an appearance in Amherst Town Court at a later date, State Police said.
