Sheriff's Deputy Pleads Guilty in DWI Crash

BUFFALO, NY - An Erie County Sheriff's Deputy pleaded guilty Monday in connection with a crash that left a motorcyclist with a serious traumatic brain injury.

Michael Haug, 29, admitted to being drunk when he struck 37-year-old Daniel Colosimo of Tonawanda on August 4th. Colosimo was stopped at a red light at Sheridan and Bailey in Amherst at the time. Haug's BAC (blood alcohol content) was .25%, more than three times the legal limit.

The Erie County District Attorney's Office says Haug pleaded to a charge of vehicular assault in the first degree and DWI.

He faces a maximum prison sentence of seven years behind bars when sentenced by Erie County Court Judge Thomas Franczyk in January.
