NT driver plowed at work

This is pretty safe. A North Tonawanda snow plow operator showed up to work "plowed" himself this week. But don't worry. If he's related to the town Alderwoman, he'll have no problem keeping his job. We hear officer Nathan is investigating...

NORTH TONAWANDA — A city public works employee has been suspended without pay after he was found with a blood-alcohol content more than three times the legal limit near the end of his shift in a snowplow last week.

Norman P. Fetterman and another employee were suspended after a convenience store employee called police when Fetterman appeared intoxicated inside the store early last Wednesday, city officials told The Buffalo News on Tuesday.

Fetterman was on the clock as a wingman in a two-person city snowplow, driven by Richard W. Brown, when police were called to the Noco Express, 921 Payne Ave., at about 6:30 a. m.

When police arrived, Fetterman registered a blood-alcohol content of 0.25 percent, more than three times the legal limit of 0.08, city officials said.
