ROME (WSYR-TV) - New York State Police say a Rome man is facing multiple charges including a fugitive charge after a DWI arrest.

Just before 3 a.m. on Friday, March 10, NYS Police responded to Townline Road and State Route 46 in the City of Rome for a car crash involving one car.

Investigators say Scott D. Holley, 42, of Rome, was driving a 2001 Nissan Sentra westbound on Townline Road when he failed to keep right when coming to the intersection of State Route 46.

Holley continued westbound over an embankment and landed on a guardrail on the west side shoulder of the roadway. 

Holley was transported to St. Elizabeth’s hospital for minor injuries. He was found to be under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident and was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated and other traffic violations.

Holley was also wanted by the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office in Florida for a drug offense with national extradition.  

Upon release from the hospital, Holley was arraigned in New York Mills Court and was committed to Oneida County Jail without bail.

State Police were assisted at the scene by the Oneida County Sheriff’s Department, Rome Fire Department and Lake Delta Fire Department.
