A Syracuse man is facing multiple charges following a 2-car crash in the Town of Verona.

An investigation revealed the two vehicles collided when 48-year-old Brian Wilson of Syracuse allegedly failed to yield the right of way while attempting to make a U-Turn.
Troopers on the scene interviewed Wilson and detected an odor of alcohol on his breath. Breath and sobriety tests indicated Wilson was allegedly intoxicated and a DMV check showed his license was suspended. It was also discovered that an order of protection was in place between Wilson and his female passenger.
Troopers then discovered a stun gun inside the vehicle. As a result Wilson was charged with DWI after tests indicated his BAC to be .13%, Criminal Contempt, Criminal Possession of a Weapon and Aggravated Unlicensed Operation. He is being held at Oneida County Jail to await arraignment in the Town of Verona court.
