Jamestown man charged with felony DWI after prior conviction

A man whose car was stopped by Jamestown police for traffic violations shortly before 1 a.m. Saturday was charged with aggravated DWI because of his blood-alcohol content and with felony DWI because he had a previous DWI conviction, police said.

Police said they stopped a vehicle driven by Jay P. Campbell, 50, at 12:48 a.m. on Allen Street near Maple Street in the City of Jamestown after observing traffic violations.

In a check at the city jail, police said, Campbell's blood-alcohol content was greater that 0.18, so the charge against him was upgraded to aggravated DWI. Felony DWI is charged when a driver has been convicted of DWI within the previous 10 years.
