SCHUYLER – A Genesee County man is facing charges after he was allegedly found to be driving more than 100 mph on the Thruway in Schuyler while intoxicated, according to New York State Police.

Police say that around 2:25 a.m. Wednesday, troopers were patrolling the Thruway in the town of Schuyler when they saw a 2009 Dodge Ram pickup truck headed westbound, driving 108 mph in a 65 mph zone.

Troopers pulled over the vehicle driven by 46-year-old Paul Tuttle of Bergen, Genesee County, and they say that while speaking with Tuttle they noticed a strong odor of alcohol on his breath.

Police say sobriety tests indicated Tuttle was intoxicated and they took him into custody for DWI. He was then transported to state police barracks in Schuyler for processing, where they say Tuttle refused to submit to a chemical test.

Tuttle was arraigned in the Town of German Flatts court on charges of DWI, speeding, refusal of a breath screen and other traffic charges. He was sent to the Herkimer County Jail on $1,000 cash bail or $2,000 bond. He’s scheduled to appear in the Town of Schuyler Court on Jan. 15.
