Shawn Robison
Niagara County Sheriff's deputies charged a 52-year-old Newfane man with driving while intoxicated late Friday night.

According to a report filed by the Niagara County Sheriff's Office, Shawn P. Robison, 2720 Beebe while driving southbound on Lockport-Olcott Road, nearly hit Sheriff's Patrick Tighe after Tighe had just completed another traffic stop.

"I was forced to quickly move and lean up against the patrol vehicle to avoid being struck by the vehicle traveling southbound on Lockport-Olcott Road," Tighe's report said. "I quickly got back into my patrol vehicle and activated the emergency sirens, (emergency lights were already activated) to stop the vehicle that nearly struck me."

The vehicle turned westbound onto Wilson-Burt Road, nearly striking another vehicle at the intersection, continuing westbound in the middle of the roadway, until turning in the parking lot of 2239 West Creek Road, when Tighe approached it.

The deputy asked Robison if he was aware he had almost hit him, Robison responded "Yeah, I am sorry. I drank too much," according to the report.

Robison failed several field sobriety tests and was charged with DWI, second-degree reckless endangerment, reckless driving, failure to keep right, failure to use designated lane, failure to use care to avoid colliding with an emergency vehicle, and improper/no signal. He was transported to Niagara County Jail and held on $500 bail. He is scheduled to appear in the Town of Newfane Court on May 6.
