DEC. 7


West Colonial Drive and Tubb Street. Drunken Driving. At 4:02 a.m., Oakland and Winter Garden police stopped a truck speeding in excess of 75 mph, westbound on West Colonial Drive. While an Oakland officer approached the stopped vehicle, the driver began to drive away. The officer instructed the driver to stop in the right lane at the junction with the turnpike. The driver admitted high intoxication, resulting from four drinks at a nightclub on West Colonial, and the passenger was heavily intoxicated, too. The driver did not have a license, because he was an immigrant from Mexico, but he had been living in the U.S. for 26 years. The truck belongs to the driver’s wife, who received a ride to procure her vehicle and take the passenger home. The driver got a citation for possession of and open alcohol container in a motor vehicle and transport to the BRC with an arrest on charges of driving without a license.


Cross Street and Henschen Avenue. Driving Without a License. An officer stopped a truck northbound on Cross Street at 8:06 a.m., because it had a trailer with no tag attached. The driver offered his Mexican ID and had no valid ID or driver’s license. The officer arrested the driver on charges of driving without a license and issued a warning for no tag on the trailer. The vehicle was given to its registered owner.

DEC. 12


400 block of West Oakland Avenue. Trespassing. A complainant informed police that a man was trespassing on his property, intoxicated and refusing to leave. An officer arrived at the residence around 6 a.m. The officer found the suspect and recognized him from a previous trespass at the property on July 4. The suspect smelled like alcohol, slurred speech, stumbled, behaved irrationally and belligerently, yelled vulgar and incoherent fragments and responded to the officer’s commands only after being told twice, according to the report. The officer arrested the suspect on trespassing charges but needed the aid of another officer to get him into the patrol car. The suspect profanely ranted and yelled while violently shuffling in the back of the car. The suspect continued yelling while officers tried to remove him from the car for booking and slipped his handcuffs under his legs, causing cuts on his wrists. The police conducted a safe book.


DEC. 8


1500 block of East Silver Star Road. Theft. An officer met a complainant at 11:45 a.m. at his residence. The complainant said someone had removed the tag and decal from his van while parked in a fitness center lot around 9 a.m. Police filed a report for the stolen items.
