On August 8, 2018 at 3:54pm we received a call about a speeding car on north main that was running red lights. An officer caught up to the vehicle at 5th and Main and stopped it. The vehicle stopped quickly in the middle of the road, the driver turned his radio up very loud and got out and started dancing in the center of the roadway ignoring officer’s commands. The male was approached and taken into custody without incident. He was arrested for Driving While intoxicated with a BAC of .10, careless driving, and other charges.
Driving while impaired is no laughing matter and we are fortunate that no crashes were caused, and the male was located. We appreciate citizens calling such behaviors in so that we can act on their information. This was one of 3 DWI arrests we made yesterday evening.
