Police: Drunk man goes nearly 40 mph over speed limit in stolen vehicle

TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) – Police in the City of Tonawanda say a drunk man was stopped after speeding in a stolen vehicle.

Sarama was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation, possession of a stolen vehicle, DWI and various other traffic charges.
