The checkpoint was done in honor of Lindsay Kyle who was killed by an impaired driver in the city of Rochester on Oct. 19, 2003.

Ontario County Sheriff’s Office and Canandaigua City Police made several arrests during a DWI Sobriety Checkpoint overnight Nov. 2. The checkpoint took place on Lakeshore Drive in the city, from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.

The checkpoint was done in honor of Lindsay Kyle who was killed by an impaired driver in the city of Rochester on Oct. 19, 2003. Lindsay was stopped at a red light when the impaired driver slammed into the back of her car at over 100 mph. Lindsay’s mother, Sarah Palermo, speaks regularly to offenders convicted of impaired driving in hopes of educating them on how this crime affects families of innocent victims who are left behind when their loved ones are killed. Her goal is to prevent offenders from repeating their offense.

In the recent checkpoint, 33 vehicles were sent to the que for secondary testing. A sheriff’s K9 certified narcotics detection was also used to search two vehicles.

The checkpoint resulted in the following arrests:

Hunter M. Waldeis, 20, of Naples, charged with driving while alcohol impaired, drugs

Gage R. Hurlburt, 18, of Canandaigua, charged with unlawful possession of marijuana

Jamie L. Nelson, 37, of Canandaigua, charged with driving while intoxicated

Mason MClain, 22, of Stanley, charged with DWAI drugs, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, fifth-degree criminal possession of marijuana, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, and unlicensed operation

Scott Wagner, 48, of Canandaigua, charged with driving while intoxicated
