An alleged hit-and-run accident in Genesee County has led to the arrest in Wyoming County of a man wanted in Texas.
Taken into custody by the Wyoming County Sheriff's Office and held on $25,000 bail was Guy J. Bontrager, 41, of 3269 Humphrey Road, Varysburg.
In Wyoming County, Bontrager is charged with unlicensed operation, aggravated unlicensed operation and operating a vehicle without an interlock device.
Bontrager's license had allegedly been revoked because of a prior DWI conviction.
Sgt. Daniel Hummel, Wyoming County, stopped Bontrager on Route 77 in the Town of Sheldon after receiving a report in Genesee County on Friday of a hit-and-run accident.
During the traffic stop, a records check indicated that Bontrager has a warrant for his arrest in Texas. The Wyoming County Sheriff's Office did not indicate whether he would be extradited on that warrant.
There's no information yet on whether Bontrager also faces charges in Genesee County.
