ILION – An Ilion man was arrested for drunk driving following an accident on West Street last week, police said.

At about 6:10 p.m. on Dec. 3, officers arrested James H. Bernard, 67, charging him with driving while intoxicated and driving with a blood alcohol content greater than .08 percent, police said. The arrest came after Bernard was involved in a vehicle accident in front of the Church of Annunciation, in which he managed to flip his car and damage another vehicle.

Bernard was released to a third party and is scheduled to appear in Ilion village court at a later date.
