East Rochester man facing multiple charges
ROCHESTER — After a vehicle slipped off a Route 16 off ramp, a man was arrested in connection with an alcohol related incident Wednesday evening.
Police responded to investigate after receiving a report that a vehicle lost control and left the Milton Road — Route 125 — off ramp to Route 16 around 7:42 p.m.
As no one was inside the vehicle when officers arrived, a police K-9 team responded to search the area. Police found two men and a boy walking along Milton Road.
Following an investigation, Justin Holsapple, 36, of 32 B Grove St. in East Rochester, was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, conduct after an accident and endangering the welfare of a child.
None of the occupants were injured, according to police.
“We suspect the accident was caused by a combination of speed and alcohol,” Sgt. Michael Brinkman said in an e-mail.
As a juvenile was involved, Brinkman said police could not release the identity or the age of the child.
The vehicle was towed from the scene.
Holsapple, who was released on $5,000 personal recognizance, is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 6 at 8 a.m.
