ELLISBURG — Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies charged Justin T. Sackett, 27, of 330 S. Main St., Mannsville, with driving while intoxicated after he struck a National Grid utility pole with his vehicle at about 9:47 p.m. Monday at the intersection of County Route 91 and Cobb Place in the town of Ellisburg.

Deputies said Mr. Sackett was taken to Samaritan Medical Center, Watertown, for treatment of minor injuries.

He failed a Breathalyzer test at the hospital and told deputies that he was driving back home after having three to four drinks at a bar in Lorraine,

A nurse at Samaritan took a blood sample and police are waiting for the test results, deputies said.

Additional charges are pending and he is to appear in Ellisburg Town Court at a later date to answer them.
