Orchard Park Police arrested two people after the Bills win yesterday, one for reckless driving and the other for a hit and run.

Orchard Park Police say one was driving erratically, failing to say in her lane on North Buffalo Road.

According to police, Sarah Quintieri, 37 from Amherst, failed a sobriety test. She was arrested and charged DWI, moving from lane unsafely, aggravated unlicensed operation, and refusal to take a breath screener.

Quintieri was released on bail, according to officials.

Stephen Lestingi, 46 from Lakeview, was also arrested for DWI, say police. According to officials, Lestingi was doing donuts in a private parking lot when he hit a fence and caused the front license plate to be left at the scene.

The owner of the lot told police he was hit in the leg by the car when he tried to stop Lestingi from leaving.

While officers were investigating, Lestingi returned for his license plate and was stopped shortly after on Southwestern Boulevard. He admitted to being involved in the hit and run and failed a sobriety test.

Police say they arrested Lestingi and took him to the police station, where he submitted a breath test of .18 BAC.

According to officials, he was charged with consuming alcohol in a vehicle, DWI, aggravated DWI (.18), no front plate, and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident. He was also given assault and reckless endangerment charges, both felonies.

Police say Lestingi has one prior DWI conviction from 2007.

The owner of the private lot who was hit was taken to the hospital by Emergency Medical Services and treated for non-life threatening injuries, according to officials.

Orchard Park Police say Lestingi is being held until his appearance in court.
