17100 block of West Colonial Drive. Drunken driving. Around 3:15 a.m., an officer stopped a car for running a red light from the Florida’s Turnpike off ramp by two seconds. The car weaved between lanes twice before stopping. The driver said she did not know the light had been red. She slurred speech as she said she had just one drink in downtown Orlando around midnight and was feeling 100%. On a 10 scale, she rated her drunkenness at zero. For the nine-step test, she took 16 steps and asked whether that was enough. She believed she had taken 11 steps. 




1600 block of East Silver Star Road. Drug possession. At about 1:20 a.m., an officer stopped a car for a possible illegal tint. Upon approach, all three occupants opened their doors and stuck their hands out. They closed the doors on request. One passenger said the car was not theirs. The officer asked to search the car. The driver refused because he did not know what was in the car. The rear passenger said the law did not require him to exit the car, but officers dragged him out and arrested him on resistance charges, causing the other occupants to exit. A K-9 search revealed less than a gram of marijuana in the front passenger seat and two cigar packs in the back. All denied ownership of the items. Officers arrested the front passenger on cannabis possession and concealed weapon charges once they found a handgun under the car where he had been sitting. The driver received citations of illegal tint and driving without a valid license. The car was towed.
