STOW, N.Y. (WKBW) — New York State Police say an Ohio man has been arrested for driving while intoxicated with two children in the car in Chautauqua County on Sunday.

Troopers say 52-year-old James Deflorville of Strongsville, Ohio was stopped on I-86 in Stow for driving erratically, and was arrested after he failed several standardized field sobriety tests.

Deflorville was transported to State Police in Jamestown where he provided a breath sample of .17 percent BAC, was processed, and issued an appearance ticket.

Deflorville is scheduled to appear in Town of North Harmony Court in November.

The two children were turned over to an uninvolved third party.
