Sunday, May 20th, 2018Grandfather drives drunk with toddler in backseat
A 52-year-old man is accused of endangering the life of his 20-month-old granddaughter by driving “super drunk” with the toddler in the back seat of his car.
Shortly after 8 p.m. May 3, Wyandotte police spotted the man in the area of Fort Street and Goddard, as he failed to signal a right turn and then was paced traveling at speeds in excess of 35 mph in a marked 25 mph zone.
Police stopped the driver near the Burger King restaurant on Fort Street in Lincoln Park.
The officer noted that the man’s eyes were bloodshot and glossy, and the odor of intoxicants emitted from his breath.
A toddler was in a car seat, in the rear of the vehicle behind the front passenger seat. The man said the child was his 20-month-old granddaughter.
In response to the officer’s question, the man said “I haven’t drank today.”
According to information provided by the Law Enforcement Information Network and Michigan Secretary of State, the man had one prior conviction for operating while intoxicated and had a few active warrants.
The officer told the man to get out of the car. He again asked him if he had consumed any alcoholic beverages.
“I had one earlier, but it was about 2 o’clock when I stopped drinking,” the man said. However, he later changed his story to say he had two drinks, then a few minutes later admitted to having three drinks.
Two additional officers arrived at the scene to offer their assistance.
In one of the field sobriety tests, police asked the man to recite the alphabet, starting with the letter “C” and ending at “M.” He started at “A” and ended at “Z,” then sang “Now I know my A, Z, M’s.”
After failing additional field sobriety tests, a preliminary breath test indicated his blood-alcohol content was 0.26.
Saturday, May 19th, 2018Woman asked deputy for directions. She forgot about the drugs in her car.
A West Virginia woman picked the wrong person to ask for directions last month in Virginia.
Lisa M. Polk, 56, of Capon Bridge, West Virginia was driving near Round Hill, Virginia on March 22 when she stopped to ask for directions from a Loudon County Sheriff's deputy, their office said in a Tuesday release.
The deputy determined Polk was possibly under the influence of alcohol, and an open container of alcohol was found in her vehicle, the sheriff's office said. A search led the deputy to find suitcases filled with around six pounds of marijuana, 200 grams of THC oil, more than $1,500 in cash, as well as rolling papers and other paraphernalia, according to the sheriff.

Friday, May 18th, 2018Mac Miller arrested for DUI
Mac Miller has allegedly been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.
The 26-year-old rapper is believed to have been drinking before he got behind the wheel of his 2016 G-Wagon, which he allegedly crashed into a power pole in the San Fernando Valley at around 1am on Thursday (17.05.18).
According to TMZ, Mac - whose real name is Malcolm James McCormick - and two passengers who were in the car at the time allegedly fled the scene on foot.
It has been claimed that an eyewitness called police and told them which direction the group had gone, and when cops arrived on the scene, they ran the plates on the vehicle at retrieved Mac's address.
The publication reports that when police arrived at the home of the 'My Favorite Part' rapper, he allegedly "confessed to driving drunk and fleeing the scene."
A law enforcement source is quoted by TMZ as saying: "He was the most polite and nice intoxicated person we've ever seen."
Mac was allegedly taken to jail, where his bail was believed to be $15,000, and was released from the facility later on Thursday.
The alleged incident comes after the rapper recently split with his girlfriend of two years Ariana Grande, who took to Instagram earlier this month to voice her "endless support" for her former beau.
Posting a picture of the pair on her Instagram story last week, the 24-year-old singer wrote: "Hi! This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the planet Malcolm McCormick. I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us! (sic)
"Unconditional love is not selfish. It is wanting the best for that person even if at the moment, it's not you. I can't wait to know and support you forever and I'm so proud of you!! (sic)"
Thursday, May 17th, 2018Taxi driver pulled over near strip club was under influence
SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- Springfield Police pulled over a taxi driver who they say was under the influence of marijuana early Monday morning.
Police say 61-year-old John Jelley of Eugene was driving the taxi on Mohawk Boulevard without headlights or tail lights on with a customer in the car.
Springfield Police say the taxi was taking the customer from the Sweet Illusions Strip Club when the officer stopped the vehicle.
Police say the driver showed signs of impairment when speaking to the officer.
“The officer contacted the driver and subsequent investigation determined that the driver was driving on intoxicants, specifically marijuana,” said Sgt. Brian Humphreys.
According to police, there was a distinct smell of burnt marijuana in the taxi.
In a search of the vehicle, police say they found marijuana paraphernalia.
Jelley was arrested and sent to the Springfield municipal jail.
Police stress to drivers that operating a vehicle under the influence of marijuana is dangerous. They say don't get into a car with someone you think may be impaired.
“Driving is a divided attention task and when you start to impair that it makes the task dangerous," said Sgt. Humphreys. "So a lot of the things that officers look for, with impaired driving can stem from the use of narcotics, and stem from the use of marijuana--prescription drugs there is a lot of things, that can impair our ability to drive safely above and beyond just the use of alcohol."
According to police, Jelley called another taxi driver to take the customer home.
Jelley is charged with DUII and reckless driving.
KVAL News reached out to Oregon Taxi, on their policies they have for drivers. They have not responded.
Wednesday, May 16th, 2018Mom used kids to push wrecked vehicle after DUI crash, police say
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis mother is accused of driving under the influence, crashing her vehicle and then trying to push her damaged car away from the scene with the help of her two children.
The incident happened on Mays Glade Drive late Saturday night, according to WREG.
The mother, Krysten Scott, told authorities she was heading westbound when a sedan hit her car, according to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office. Despite the significant damage to her vehicle, the Scott reportedly tried to drive away. When that didn’t work, witnesses said she jumped out of the vehicle and started pushing it home with the help of her children.
When one witness asked her what she was doing, according to WREG, she simply replied, “Can you help us push my car to my house?”
By the time authorities arrived on the scene, both children had walked home. Scott followed as police were taking witness statements, authorities said.
When investigators arrived at her door, she refused to answer. Several minutes later, she walked out of the house to make a call and was promptly put in handcuffs, according to the sheriff’s office. The arrest report noted Scott resisted officers and then “tested poorly” on the field sobriety test, despite her insistence she wasn’t drunk.
Scott was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, child abuse/neglect, resisting official detention and leaving the scene of an accident involving injury.
Tuesday, May 15th, 2018Sacramento restaurant creates cocktail for beloved bartender killed by drunk driver
Family, friends and co-workers are mourning the loss of Antonio Navarrete — a young, bartender at the popular Sacramento restaurant Zocalo — who was killed early Saturday morning by a drunk driver.
Navarrete was driving home after working a Friday night shift around at Zocalo's University Village location around 12:30 a.m. when he was hit at the intersection of El Camino Avenue and Evergreen Street.
The driver who allegedly hit Navarrete is 38-year-old Xoury Soukouang. He has been charged with gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and is currently booked at the Sacramento County Jail on $350,000 jail.
Navarrete's friends and co-workers remember their friend as a hard-working, loving person with the most infectious smile.
"He was the light of everyone's life. He literally lit up the bar," Jewel Carbone, who manages Zocalo-UV, said.
Nestor Jimenez, who worked with Navarrete for more than six years, said he had the best smile "hands down."
"Best smile of all three Zocalos," he said. "No one competes with that."
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help pay for Navarrete's funeral expenses.
In addition, Zocalo has created a cocktail in his honor called "La Sonrisa," which means "the smile" in Spanish. It will be sold at all three Zocalo locations this week. Proceeds will go to Navarrete's family.
Monday, May 14th, 2018Two charged with DUI in wrong-way crashes
PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The state police have charged two motorists with driving under the influence after two separate wrong-way crashes within hours of each other on Saturday night and Sunday morning. No one was seriously injured in the crashes.
The first crash was reported at 7:20 p.m. Saturday on Route 4 in East Greenwich, after a driver going north in the high-speed southbound lane crashed into a car going south.
Corey Stott Miller, 28, of 276 Weeden St., Pawtucket — the driver going in the wrong direction, according to the state police — was charged with driving under the influence, first offense; driving to endanger, resulting in physical injury; and refusal to submit to a chemical test.
Miller was treated at Kent County Hospital for minor injuries while the driver and a passenger in the car struck by Miller’s vehicle were treated at South County Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries and released.
The second crash was reported at 2 a.m. Sunday when the state police received numerous 911 calls for a wrong-way driver going south in the northbound lanes of Route 95. The driver sideswiped a car as it crossed into Warwick and then crashed near Jefferson Boulevard, the state police said.
The driver, Cameron Wambolt, 25, of 306 Washington St., West Warwick, was charged with driving under the influence with a blood alcohol level of 0.15 or greater and driving to endanger, resulting in physical injury.
Wambolt was not injured in the crash, but two people in the car hit by Wambolt’s vehicle were treated at Rhode Island Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries and released.
In a third, unrelated incident, Tommy Price, 43, of 110B Columbia Heights Rd., Charlestown, was stopped by state police on Route 95 in Warwick Saturday night and charged with driving under the influence and refusal to submit to a chemical test.
“There is simply no excuse for anyone to be driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs,” state police superintendent Col. Ann C. Assumpico said in a statement. “We have zero tolerance for people who drive while impaired or those who operate their vehicles in a dangerous manner that endangers the lives of others.”
