AUG. 10


1500 block of East Silver Star Road. Drug possession. At about 9 p.m., an officer noticed a sedan near the back of a fitness center. The officer approached the car, so the driver lowered his window, causing much marijuana smoke to emerge. The officer repeatedly asked him and the passenger whether cannabis was in the car, to which they said, “No, we smoked it all already.” The officer found a half-rolled blunt weighing a half-gram between the driver’s seat and side panel and arrested the driver.

AUG. 11


Silver Bend Boulevard. Resisting an officer. An officer stopped a man who made an illegal U-turn while driving in an evasive manner at 11:43 p.m. The driver yelled, “What the (expletive) are you pulling me over for?” They recognized one another, causing the driver to shut his door. He refused requests to lower his window or exit the vehicle until the officer threatened to break the window, at which point the driver opened the door but still refused requests. The officer removed him with an arm bar, which he resisted. Officers arrested him on resisting an officer without violence charges and cited the illegal U-turn.

AUG. 13


West Colonial Drive and Good Homes Road. Drunken driving. A car without lights on at 12:37 a.m. was subject to a traffic stop. The driver said he had been at work but forgot where that was. He found insurance proof and asked, “Is this what you need?” before providing his license. He randomly guessed from many papers until an envelope held the registration. A payroll stub showed his Orlando workplace, from which he said he had left 10 minutes prior. He said he was going to his Orlando address via Vineland Road, which made no sense. He did not know how a fresh cut on his hand happened and frequently repeated himself, including asking how many of his lights were off. An unopened beer was on the passenger seat. He moved the can to the floor in the back while officers checked his records. He repeatedly said he would take a breath test and pass. For sobriety tests, he lost balance three times during the instructions and started before they were over. He swayed and failed to count past 16 on the 30-second one-leg stand. He said he had no impairing substances and had moved the beer so police would not think him drunken. His breath registered as sans alcohol. He fell asleep in a holding cell before taking a urine test, which he left on a urinal instead of the floor as told. He also left the faucet running. Police took him to jail on DUI charges with a citation for car lights off.
