  • A Greece Police officer suffered minor injuries early Sunday morning after the vehicle he was driving was struck by another car whose driver was later charged with felony Driving While Intoxicated.
    Greece Police Sgt. Kevin M. Ewanow said Officer Michael Miller was responding to a call for customer trouble at T.C. Hooligan's at The Mall at Greece Ridge in his marked patrol car. He was heading south on Fetzner Road when he was hit by a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction. According to Ewanow, that vehicle was traveling at an "excessive speed" and crossed into Miller's lane before sideswiping his vehicle. Both vehicles suffered extensive damage, Ewanow said.
    Members of the Greece Police Department Accident Reconstruction and Technician's Unit responded to investigate. Miller was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and released for minor injuries.
    The driver of the other vehicle, Paul R. Mandell, 31, of Greece, was treated and released at the scene by Monroe Ambulance.  He was subsequently arrested for felony Driving While Intoxicated as well as other vehicle and traffic charges and is being held pending arraignment.
