Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — At just before 8:30 p.m. Friday, a Daniels Road woman was reportedly driving behind Milczarski who was swerving and abruptly braking. When she tried to pass him, Milczarski allegedly tried to run her off the road, according to the arrest report from the Sheriff's Office.

The woman reported that while at a stop sign at the Upper Mountain and Lockport Junction roads intersection, Milczarski got out of his vehicle and approached her. He reportedly told her to "turn your lights off" and threw beer cans at her vehicle.

Deputies tracked Milczarski down at just before 9 p.m. Friday night, traveling west on Wilson Burt Road. He allegedly drove on the shoulder of the roadway and crossed the double yellow line multiple times for no reason, deputies reported. Milczarski was pulled over on Young Street, although he did not stop for at least half a mile after deputies activated their emergency lights, the report said. In the vehicle was a 13-year-old sitting in the backseat.

Deputies determined Milczarski was drunk and he struggled with them during the arrest. He reportedly took off running, heading west on Young and then northwest through the backyards of homes. Deputy Patrick Tighe found Milczarski on Seminary Street.

Milczarski was arrested at 9:20 p.m. and taken to Niagara County Jail in lieu of $750 bail. The Sheriff's Office said a chemical test reported a .15 percent BAC for Milczarski.

Further charges may be pending against Milczarski concerning the incident on Lockport Junction Road, the Sheriff's Office said.

The Leandra's Law bill was unanimously passed by state lawmakers and signed into law by Gov. David Paterson on Nov. 18, 2009. That was a month after Leandra Rosado, 11, was killed in New York City on when her friend's mother, Carmen Huertas, flipped the car they were in while under the influence of alcohol.
