Niagra Falls, N.Y. - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Field Operations assisted in the New York State Police arrest of an individual on charges of driving while intoxicated.

On July 16, CBP officers encountered Blair Boyer, a 46-year-old Canadian citizen at the Rainbow Bridge border crossing in Niagara Falls, N.Y. Mr. Boyer presented himself for inspection at the primary booth where the CBP officer noticed Mr. Boyer's speech was slurred during the primary interview. Mr. Boyer was escorted for a secondary inspection after he admitted to the primary officer that he had been drinking that night.

During secondary inspection the New York State Police were contacted and responded to administer field sobriety tests. Mr. Boyer failed the field sobriety tests and was arrested by the New York State Police on charges of driving while intoxicated.
