TURIN, N.Y. (WWNY) - A 20 year old Lewis County man was issued seven tickets early Saturday, after he allegedly turned off his headlights while driving his car “at a high rate of speed.”

That’s according to the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office, which reported a deputy tried to stop a car on Route 26 in the Town of Turin a little after 1 AM. Instead, deputies said, the driver of the car “failed to comply and turned off the headlights” while traveling down Route 26.

A little later, state police found the car at Burdick’s Crossing Road.

Tyler Spann, 20, of Main Street in Glenfield, was charged with driving while intoxicated, (0.12 blood alcohol); leaving the scene of a property damage accident; failure to comply; consumption of alcohol in a motor vehicle; operating a vehicle without headlights; failure to keep right; underage possession of alcohol.

He’ll answer the tickets in Town of Turin court at a later date.
