Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports Deputies arrested a 38-year-old Alden female following a hit and run crash which occurred shortly after midnight on October 18. Erie County Sheriff’s dispatch received calls at 12:15 A.M. about a vehicle striking a utility pole at Three Rod and Broadway. Callers provided a description of the vehicle and direction of travel and Deputies conducted a search. About twenty-five minutes later, Deputies located the vehicle at a South Lawn Court address in Alden. Deputies administered standard field sobriety and breath tests on Tara Schafer. The subject failed multiple field tests and registered a BAC level more than twice the legal limit. Schafer was arrested and charged with DWI, aggravated DWI, speeding, leaving the scene of a crash and unsafe lane change. Schafer was released to a sober third party with appearance tickets for Alden court.
