• Two teenaged girls pulled out of a Transit Road business when a witness told police the driver was drunk. The officer attempted to pull the driver over, but she reportedly fled, traveling more than 80 miles per hour down Transit from Lancaster past Dodge Road. She allegedly went through several red lights and eventually tried to make a turn at a high rate of speed but skidded off the road and into the porch of a home. The car was stolen, and the girl had been drinking, and there were both open and closed containers of alcohol in the vehicle.

Wednesday, June 1

• While at the scene of an accident, police saw a vehicle without headlights on that was swerving. When pulled over, the female driver appeared to be intoxicated but said she was coming from her daughter’s house. In order for sobriety tests to be conducted, the woman had to remove her high heels and be taken to an area where she was not distracted by overhead lights. When she was told she was under arrest, she reportedly said, “No, I don’t think so,” and tried to get back in her car.

• A Buffalo man was pulled over because he had no taillights and his registration was both suspended and belonged to a different vehicle.
