Syracuse man charged with DWI following crash outside Turning Stone Casino
VERONA, N.Y. —
A Syracuse man is facing DWI and weapons charges following a crash over the weekend in Oneida County.
According to New York State Police, a state trooper was dispatched by Oneida County 911 to a two-vehicle property damage accident on State Route 365 in front of Turning Stone Casino in Verona around 10:50 p.m. Saturday.
An investigation revealed that a 2007 Nissan operated by a Brewerton man was traveling southwest on Route 365 when a 2000 Subaru traveling northeast, operated by Brian K. Wilson, of Syracuse, failed to yield the right of way and made a U-turn in front of the Nissan, causing both vehicles to collide in the intersection, police said.
While interviewing Wilson, the state trooper observed an odor of alcohol and a sobriety test determined that Wilson was intoxicated, according to police.
Wilson was arrested for DWI, and a DMV check showed his drivers license had been suspended. Further investigations found that there was an active order of protection in place between Wilson and his woman passenger. Police also said a stun gun was located inside his vehicle.
Wilson was processed at the Oneida state police barracks, where a breath test determined his blood alcohol content to be .13 percent.
He was charged with DWI, criminal contempt in the second degree, criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree and aggravated unlicensed operation in the third degree.
Wilson was sent to Oneida County Jail to await arraignment and will appear in the Town of Verona Court at a later date.
