California man arrested, issued three citations
Police responded at 10:57 p.m. to a report of an intoxicated man who was sitting in a truck on the 2000 block of N. Central Ave. When police arrived, an officer observed the truck traveling southbound on Central Avenue.
The officer performed a traffic stop near Central Avenue and McMillan Street, and the driver, a 34-year-old Modesto, California, man, appeared to be intoxicated. There was a strong odor of intoxicants on his breath, his eyes were bloodshot and glassy, his speech was slurred and difficult to understand, and his comprehension of basic instructions was poor.
During field sobriety tests, the man did not follow basic instructions, and police ceased testing him. He registered 0.330 on a preliminary breath test and was arrested. While searching the vehicle for intoxicants, police located two small pill bottle-type containers with trace amounts of green plant material, which tested positive for THC.
The man consented to a legal blood draw. He was transported to the Saint Joseph’s Hospital emergency room, and a phlebotomist drew a sample.
A sober adult later came and took custody of the man. He had one prior operating while under the influence (OWI) conviction in California in 2008, and his California driver’s license showed “suspended or revoked.” He was issued citations for possession of THC; operating without a valid license; and OWI, second offense.
