A Sinclairville man was charged under Leandra’s Law after he was stopped for a traffic violation with three children in his vehicle Saturday, State Police in Jamestown reported.

Chad Clark, 31, was arrested for driving while his ability was impaired after he was pulled over on Bemus-Ellery Road in Bemus Point and failing several field sobriety tests, troopers said.

According to the report, Clark was taken to UPMC Hospital in Jamestown, where he provided a blood sample, and to the State Police station in Jamestown, where a drug recognition expert determined that he was under the influence of marijuana.

The three children in the vehicle were turned over to a sober third party, state police said. Clark was released pending an appearance in Ellery Town Court.
