Cops Corner 06.18.15

by: Zak Kerr Staff Writer/Reporter


MAY 27


16000 block of West Colonial Drive. Drunken driving. At 3:06 a.m., an officer stopped a westbound car that had been traveling 74 mph in a 45-mph zone, after the driver failed by a car length to stop at a red light. The driver admitted to drinking at a Kissimmee house party and driving toward Davenport. When asked why he had been in Winter Garden, the driver said he had been at a smokehouse, which was not open. The officer asked why he had said Kissimmee. He said, “I wasn’t. I don’t know why I said that.” On a 10 scale, he rated his drunkenness as four before stating at 3:15 that the time was 2:30. He struggled to find license and registration. During his walk-and-turn test, he stumbled midway and then just stood and stared at the officer, who asked whether he was done. He said yes. For his one-leg stand, he lost balance after four seconds and hopped on one foot in an attempt to regain balance. A breath sample at the DUI center registered his blood-alcohol content at .226.

MAY 28


16000 block of West Colonial Drive. Driving while license suspended. An officer stopped a car traveling 33 mph at 1:46 a.m. to see whether the slow speed was a medical issue. The driver said he had been driving 12 miles slower than the limit because his speedometer light was not working, and he did not want to speed. Dispatch showed four suspensions of the driver’s license between August and October 2013, with three convictions for driving with a suspended license.
