Chautauqua County woman charged with DWI, resisting arrest

A French Creek woman who allegedly struggled with deputies shortly after midnight Sunday was charged with resisting arrest and driving while intoxicated, the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Officers said they stopped a vehicle driven by Julie M. Knowles, 47, on Route 426 in the Town of French Creek because it matched the description of a vehicle associated with an altercation on Route 474 earlier in the evening.

Deputies said they determined Knowles was intoxicated and took her into custody after a brief struggle. She also was charged with consumption of alcohol in a motor vehicle.
