Police stop Greece man allegedly taking injured deer to Unity Hospital
A Greece man was charged with driving while intoxicated after police found him allegedly trying to drive an injured deer to the hospital on Sunday night.
Andrew Caswell, 29, of Jamestown Terrace, had apparently struck the deer on Hincher Road and was driving it to Unity Hospital for treatment, said Greece Police Capt. Steve Chatterton.
Chatterton said residents of Hincher Road had called police late Sunday to report that a deer had been struck by a car, and that there was what appeared to be an argument among a small group of men near where the deer had been hit.
At the scene, residents gave a description of the car and told officers they’d heard the men say they were going to bring the deer to the hospital.
When police stopped Caswell’s car, he admitted to officers that he was taking the deer to the hospital, said Chatterton.
Caswell was ticketed and released on his own recognizance.
The deer died en route to the hospital. It was turned over to the highway department for disposal.
In a written statement, Police Chief Todd Baxter said while he sympathizes with trying to save a deer during the holiday season, “driving while intoxicated will not be tolerated.”
