On April 24, 2016 at about 7:13 p.m. Deputy Sheriff Shawn Whitford of the Livingston County Sheriff's Office, assigned to Operation Safe Interstate, conducted a traffic stop on Interstate 390 for a vehicle and traffic law violation. Upon stopping the vehicle, Deputy Sheriff Brandan Flickner of the Sheriff’s STOP DWI Unit arrived on scene to assist on the stop.  The operator was identified as 20 year old Caleb A. Logue.  An investigation led to Deputies believing that Logue was operating the vehicle in an impaired condition.  Logue performed roadside field sobriety tests, which ultimately led to his arrest for driving while ability impaired by drugs.  Logue was also allegedly found to be in possession of a hypodermic needle. The passenger was identified as 19 year Tyson C. Logue.  Tyson was also found to allegedly be in possession of a hypodermic needle.  Logue was placed under arrest and turned over to Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and later arraignment for the charge of criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument. Logue (Caleb) was transported to the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office headquarters in Geneseo to perform a drug evaluation.  At the conclusion of the drug evaluation it was Deputy Flickner’s expert opinion as a Drug Recognition Expert that Logue was under the influence of a Narcotic Analgesic and Cannabis and was unable to operate a vehicle safely.  He was turned over to Deputies at the  Livingston County Jail to be processed and later arraigned for the charges of driving while ability impaired by drugs, criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument and a vehicle and traffic law violation. Both Logue’s were arraigned on April 25th in Avon Town Court before Judge Piampiano.    Caleb Logue was held on $500 cash or $1000 bond. Tyler Logue was held on $250 cash or $500 bond.
