Former Oneida County Executive and NYS Senator, Ray Meier, is under arrest for DWI.
Rome Police arrested Meier in Rome, Saturday, August 10th. He's charged with common law DWI and aggravated DWI, which indicates a blood alcohol content of .18% or higher.
Meier was Oneida County Executive from 1991-1996, and began serving the first of five state senate terms in 1997. He'll likely appear in Rome City Court in the next week or so on the charges.
