The Buffalo News - - LOCAL NEWS -

Po­lice said that a sus­pected drunken driver was asked for her driver’s li­cense fol­low­ing a mi­nor fen­der ben­der in Lewis­ton re­cently, but in­stead handed the of­fi­cer her cell­phone.

Beth L. McCal­is­ter, 38, of Pletcher Road, Youngstown, sub­se­quently reg­is­tered 0.24 on a Breath­a­lyzer test – three times the le­gal limit – and was charged with driv­ing while in­tox­i­cated and other charges, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.

McCal­is­ter was ar­rested at 3:29 a.m. on Jan. 5 after miss­ing a stop sign at the end of the Ni­a­gara Scenic Park­way at Ridge Road, and strik­ing a curb on the op­po­site side of the road­way, po­lice said.
