ROME – A Rome man is facing an aggravated DWI charge and several other charges following a traffic stop in the city of Rome, according to New York State Police.

Around 8:15 p.m. Sunday, April 8, troopers pulled over a vehicle on Erie Boulevard in Rome that had a headlight out. Police say they interviewed the driver, 40-year-old Dametrias Jones of Rome, and arrested him for driving while intoxicated.

Police say they processed Jones at state police barracks in Lee where Jones provided a breath test, which determined his blood alcohol content level was .19 percent, more than twice the legal limit.

Jones is charged with aggravated DWI, second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, consumption of alcohol in a motor vehicle, and several other vehicle and traffic violations. Jones was released and he’s scheduled to appear in Rome City Court on April 24.
