A Rochester man is facing charges after police say he was drunk when his vehicle ended up in the Erie Canal in November 2013.

Randy Cole was arrested Wednesday and charged with driving while intoxicated by Macedon Police.

On November 23, police say they were called to the canal near Route 31. Once on the scene, officers say Cole’s vehicle was fully submerged. Cole and his passenger were able to escape through the sunroof.

Cole is due in court at a later date to answer to the charges.
