12000 block of West Colonial Drive. Drunken driving. An officer noticed a driver wearing no seat belt and swerving at 2:53 a.m., so a traffic stop occurred. The suspect complied with a request to exit the car and said he needed to pee. The officer said he could use a bathroom when they were done, but the driver proceeded to wet his pants without acknowledgement. He declined sobriety tests and was under arrest on DUI charges. He continued urinating while the officer handcuffed him, causing a puddle to form, again sans recognition. He fell asleep in the patrol car and then refused a breath test. He received a citation for lack of seat belt.


17000 block of West Colonial Drive. Drug possession. An officer followed a weaving car going 55 mph and activated both lights and siren, but the car continued at a constant speed. Another officer drove in front of the car and activated lights while the original told the driver to stop via intercom. The driver tried merging right, but the officer in front also did, easing to a stop while the other tried to block him in. The driver drifted back to the center lane at about 5 mph. The officer in back exited his car and alongside the closed driver window told the driver to stop. He replied, “No, man!” The officer smelled cannabis from the car, failed to open the locked door and then again asked him to stop, but he said no and then turned the car toward the other officer while gaining speed. The original officer aimed his pistol at the car and shouted to stop; the driver finally complied. The driver complied with orders to exit the car, turn around and put hands behind his back. The officers arrested him on charges of resisting an officer without violence and cannabis and drug possession. They learned he was on inmate release status for similarly fleeing an officer. They found less than 20 grams of marijuana in the car, a rental.
