TOWN OF LOCKPORT -- A 33-year-old Town of Lockport woman was charged March 18 with driving while intoxicated after Niagara County Sheriff's deputies found her van stuck in the grass off Robinson Road near Brockton Drive.

According to the arrest report, patrol saw that the vehicle's tires were spinning in the mud, while the driver, Danielle Ann Laspada, 6487 Dysinger Road, was apparently attempting to free the vehicle from the lawn.

Patrol spoke with witnesses nearby who said that Laspada "was driving through the parking lot on 6000 Brockton Drive at a high rate of speed" and had "aimed the large white van towards a male that was walking on the sidewalk."

The report continues that "no witness could say that Laspada was attempting to strike the male, but it appeared more likely that she was trying to park the van in front of the male on the sidewalk. The witnesses stated that the van never made it though the lawn, because of the wet condition of the lawn. Witnesses stated that the van just stopped in the middle of the lawn, Laspada got out of the van and started yelling at the male. Witnesses stated that the male just kept on walking westbound."

Laspada was determined to be intoxicated and charged with DWI, as well as reckless driving and criminal mischief. She was arraigned and held on $1,000 cash of $5,000 bond and ordered to appear in Town of Lockport Court on Thursday.

Damage to the lawn was estimated at $200.
