AUG. 22


West Colonial Drive and Good Homes Road. Drunken driving. An officer stopped a swerving car at 11:08 p.m., per a tip called in minutes prior. The caller noted the car had stopped through an entire green light 300 feet behind the traffic line, despite the caller honking. It moved slowly during the next cycle, when an officer tried conducting a traffic stop. The suspect car turned left from West Colonial Drive to Good Homes Road, swerving left twice to narrowly avoid driving up onto the sidewalk. The car ultimately stopped on Honolulu Drive. The driver provided a Mexico ID and was unable to follow the officer’s pen during the eye test. During the walk-and-turn, the suspect walked with each of his feet on an opposite side of the line instead of on it, but he insisted he was standing with one foot in front of the other. For the leg raise, the suspect repeatedly lowered his foot to the ground, eventually keeping it there and saying he could not do it. His breath registered at .242 blood-alcohol content with pungent alcohol odors emanating from him. Checks revealed his license was revoked for habitual traffic offenses as of January 2012. Officers arrested him on drunken driving and driving while license revoked charges.
