Williamson man faces drug charges after 2017 crash

A Williamson man was arrested on multiple drug charges, including DWAI-drugs — after a personal injury accident that happened last September.

Investigators say Brandon M. Are, 21, of Williamson was charged with DWAI-drugs, seventh-degreee criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminally possessing a hyperemic instrument, failure to keep right, failure to use designated lane and aggravated unlicensed operation.



Authorities did not identify details around the original accident, but noted that he was taken into custody on Sunday at 6:15 p.m.

He was processed at the Wayne County Jail before being released on appearance tickets.

The charges will be answered at a later date.
