After an investigation, Kolb was taken into custody and charged with unsafe turn and driving while intoxicated with a blood-alcohol content over .08%, according to a press release from the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office.
olb was processed at the Ontario County Jail and will answer the charges on a later date in Victor Town Court.
News of Kolb’s arrest wasn’t released to the media until 12 hours after deputies reportedly responded to the scene. The delay could have conceivably been caused by a holiday staffing shortage.
Kolb’s arrest came five days after Kolb tweeted: “There is no excuse for driving impaired this holiday season.”
News of Kolb’s arrest prompted at least one Assembly colleague and fellow Republican Keiran Michael Lalor to call for him to step down from his Assembly post.
