Police: New York man was drunk and driving wrong way on upstate highway when he hit bus


ONEONTA, New York — State police say a 28-year-old man was nearly three times over the legal limit for drunken driving when he sideswiped a bus while driving the wrong way on an upstate New York highway.

Troopers say they received a report late Sunday night from Otsego County 911 dispatchers of a car being driven west in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 88 in the town of Oneonta, 65 miles southwest of Albany.

Police say no one was injured.

Troopers say Andrew Scheiner of Worcester, New York, was driving with a suspended license and had a blood-alcohol content of 0.22 percent.

He was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated. Scheiner is being held Tuesday in the county jail on $1,000 bail. It couldn't immediately be determined if he has a lawyer who could comment on the charges.
