KENNEDY – A City of Jamestown man is facing several charges after New York State Police said he was found allegedly driving while intoxicated on I-86 near Kennedy on Sunday.

Kenneth Lamb III, 31, is charged with felony driving while intoxicated and first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation after a vehicle stop.







Troopers said Lamb was pulled over for allegedly passing the troopers at a high rate of speed.

Lamb was placed under arrest after failing several field sobriety tests and transported to the State Police Jamestown Barracks where he provided a breath sample of a .15.







Police said the charge was upgraded to a felony after a check of Lamb’s driving history revealed that he had been convicted of DWI within the preceding 10 years.

Lamb was additionally charged with aggravated unlicensed operation because his driving privileges had been revoked for an alcohol related offense.













Lamb was processed, issued tickets returnable to the Town of Poland Court and released.

Lamb is scheduled to appear in court later in the month.
