16000 block of West Colonial Drive. Drunken Driving. An officer stopped a driver who ran a stop sign at 1:29 a.m. The officer observed alcohol on the driver’s breath, confusion, disorientation, slurred speech and bloodshot eyes. The driver’s wife answered questions for him from the passenger’s seat, with the driver struggling to respond or find documents. The driver said he had a few beers but no liquor and received a verbal warning for running the stop sign. During sobriety tests, the driver began walking before instructed to begin and walked off the line. He also stopped after six seconds during the one-leg stand until the officer told him to restart. The officer arrested him on drunken-driving charges and took him to jail.




1700 block of East Silver Star Road. Theft. An officer met a member of a supermarket staff at 7:50 p.m. She said a male suspect had walked into the store shirtless and left when asked, but he then returned 20 minutes later, put on a purple Orlando City Soccer Club shirt and left. The staff member asked whether he would pay for it. He said no. She asked whether he was stealing it. He took off the shirt and gave her it. The man entered a third time almost a half-hour later, took a white Orlando City shirt and then left. Police found him across from the plaza, wearing that shirt. The staff member wished to press charges and testify, providing video evidence showing the theft of the shirts, each priced at $17.99. The suspect denied taking the shirt and said it was among belongings given to him by the Orlando Rescue Mission. Police arrested him on theft charges and took him to jail.
