Clifton Springs man drove drunk, struck utility pole

On Monday at approximately 10:25 pm deputies in Ontario County arrested William Wheaton Jr., 37, for driving while intoxicated following a one-vehicle crash at the intersection of Bunker Hill Rd. and County Rd. 27.

Wheaton was traveling east on Bunker Hill Rd. in his 2003 Hyundai Sonata when he swerved to miss a deer, then failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection, according to deputies.

His vehicle traveled through the intersection, into a driveway, and struck a utility pole. He submitted to the breath test, which revealed that he was driving while intoxicated.

He was issued citations for DWI, and failure to stop. Those charges will be answered at a later date.
