According to New York State Troopers, officers observed an unmarked vehicle with emergency lights traveling at a high rate of speed on State Route 33 in Cheektowaga.  The vehicle had emergency style red and white lights activated and other vehicles were moving to the shoulder as it passed.  As the vehicle approached the Trooper the emergency lights were turned off.  The vehicle was stopped and the driver identified himself as Louis J.
