When he couldn't dislodge the Jeep from the trees around 6:30 a.m. Saturday, he ran. With re4sidents' help, Orchard Park police found him hiding in thorn bushes nearby.

Jeremiah Valenti, 40, of Orchard Park, is to appear in Orchard Park Town Court on Nov. 9. Among the charges: driving while intoxicated, resisting arrest, leaving the scene of an accident and refusal to submit to a breath test.

Valenti also must appear in Elma Town Court for the five citations he faces after the crash at Southwestern and Transit.
