AKRON, NY-- An Erie County Sheriff Deputy has found himself on the wrong side of the law after he was charged with DWI this week.

The Sheriff's Department says a 911 call was received Monday just after 2am reporting a car had struck a house at the intersection of Mechanic Street and Buell Street in the Village of Akron.

Deputies say the car, driven by Daniel Harris, 25, of Akron, was traveling north on Mechanic Street, when Harris failed to negotiate a corner, going off of the side of the road and hit a house.

Harris was not seriously hurt.  No one in the house was injured in the accident.

Deputies charged Harris with Driving While Intoxicated and Failure to Keep Right. His BAC level was .15%.

A spokesperson for the Sheriff's Department says Harris was off-duty and driving his own personal car.

Harris was released on traffic tickets, and has been scheduled to appear in the Village of Akron Court on February 22.
