Town of West Seneca Police arrested and charged two people with driving while intoxicated early Saturday morning, both on separate occasions.

West Seneca Police responded to a complaint of a male passed out behind the steering wheel of a 2008 Saab SUV, according to authorities. Police say they woke up twenty-six year old Daniel Polis of West Seneca. 

Polis had alcohol on his breath, slurred speech and did not know where he was, according to police. Polis was taken into custody and transported to the station, where police say Polis refused to submit a chemical test to determine his alcohol content. 

After Polis was processed and released, police say he called twenty-six year old John Seep of Williamsville to pick him up.

Seep arrived at the station, where police said they also could tell he had been drinking because of his glassy eyes and slurred speech.According to police, Seep admitted to police that his license had been revoked due to a previous alcohol offense, and that he walked to the police station. 

Seep was told that Polis could only be released to a sober person. According to police, Seep then left the station. 

Officers at the station say they noticed Seep walk across the parking lot and enter the driver's side of a 2008 Volvo. Seep drove off, and was pulled over on Union Road and placed under arrest for DWI, felony aggravated unlicensed operation and driving without a license. 

According to West Seneca Police, a sober relative arrived at the police station and paid Seep's bail. 

Polis is due in court Tuesday. Seep is due in court Friday.
