Motorist found asleep on interstate charged with DWI

A Cattaraugus County man who was found asleep at the wheel of his idling vehicle on Interstate 86 was accused of drunk driving by New York State troopers.

Westley Bennett, 28, of Randolph was charged with driving while intoxicated after troopers found his vehicle parked in the eastbound lane of the Interstate Sunday. Troopers said Bennett failed several field sobriety tests at the scene and was transported to the Jamestown State Police Barracks where he provided a breath sample that registered 0.14 blood alcohol content.

Bennett was issued tickets requiring him to return to Town of Randolph Court next month.
