An upstate New York man allegedly drove away from the courthouse drunk immediately following being convicted of another DWI offense. According to the Erie County Sheriff's Office, the incident happened on April 6 following the man's court appearance in Grand Island Town Court.
Reportedly, courtroom witnesses informed the court that they allegedly smelled alcohol on the man. The court reportedly admonished the man not to drive away from the courthouse. Deputies indicated that despite the judge's warning, the man got into his vehicle and drove out of the parking lot before they could stop him from doing so.
