The Buffalo News

October 16, 2009, 8:35 AM:

An Erie County sheriff's deputy who stopped a vehicle for speeding early today in Elma was greeted by an odd sight -- the apparent driver sitting in the back seat.

After investigating the incident, Deputy Kristin Rozycki determined that the driver had climbed into the back seat in an attempt to claim he wasn't driving, according to police reports.

Michael G. Spagnola, 38, of Colden, who later admitted that he was the driver, was charged with driving while intoxicated. Police reports indicated that he recorded a blood-alcohol reading of 0.12 percent.

The traffic stop was made at Jamison and Girdle roads at about 1:50 a.m.

This was terribly amusing to me!
