Walworth man drove for miles before stopping for deputies in Wayne County

Deputies report the arrest of a Walworth man following a traffic stop in the town of Ontario.

Dirk Wright, 55, was ticketed for driving while intoxicated, failure to stop, failure to keep right, moving from lane unsafely, and faces other charges after deputies attempted to pull him over.

Deputies said police lights and sirens did not prompt Wright to stop when they attempted a traffic stop, and instead, he drove for several miles before stopping.

He was found to be intoxicated and was taken into custody without further incident.

The charges will be answered at a later date.
