Alden man charged with DWI, resisting arrest

TOWN OF CLARENCE, NY — An Alden man accused of driving-while-intoxicated is facing multiple other charges —  including resisting arrest — after a traffic stop early Friday morning.

Deputies stopped Scott Meyer, 23, of Alden, around 2:50 a.m. after observing vehicle and traffic violations on Main Street in Clarence. Meyer fled from deputies and additional units were dispatched to the scene, according to the Erie County Sheriff's Office. 

A foot pursuit began and Meyer was taken into custody around 3:35 a.m.

Meyer is charged with felony DWI-prior conviction and a felony count of aggravated unlicensed operation — his driver’s license was revoked as part of a probation agreement.  Additional charges include misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest, obstructing government administration and circumventing an interlock device.

Meyer was taken to the Erie County Holding Center where he is being held pending an arraignment.
