A man was arrested Saturday on suspicion of driving under the influence, vandalism and leaving the scene of a crash.

The incident began at 10:30 a.m. Sunday when deputies from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, San Marcos Station, responded to a report of a beige Mercedes-Benz E230 speeding northbound on Bennett Avenue when it ran
off the road, hit a concrete wall, and hit the wall of a residence in the 600 block of Bennett, said Sgt. Albert Carillo Jr. of the SDCSD.

The driver tried to flee the scene, but nearby residents detained the suspect, called 911, and waited for deputies and emergency personnel, the sergeant said.

Police: Man arrested after screaming in St. George restaurant, fleeing from officers

ST. GEORGE — A 71-year-old Las Vegas man is in custody after police say he made a scene at a Village Inn restaurant, and then led police on a dangerous chase in St. George.

Raymond Dean Perry was arrested Tuesday for investigation of criminal trespass, reckless driving, failing to stop at the command of police, driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and driving without insurance and with a suspended license.

The incident began Tuesday about 5:40 p.m. when an officer responded to the restaurant at 29 River Road., where a caller said Perry was screaming, swearing and throwing things with another man. The caller suspected the men were on drugs, according to a probable cause statement.

When the officer arrived, Perry’s vehicle was leaving the parking lot.

The officer pulled behind Perry and turned on his emergency lights; according to the statement, Perry then looked “directly” at the officer and “his eyes got big as if he was surprised” to see the officer. He sped out of the parking lot, turning south and almost causing multiple collisions, the officer wrote in the statement.Advertise with usReport ad

When the officer pursued Perry, Perry made a U-turn that caused more drivers to slam on their brakes to avoid a collision. “He came to a stop in the through lanes at St. George Blvd.,” the officer wrote, “even though the light was green.”

Perry then turned left, again in front of moving traffic, and eventually tried to get on northbound I-15. The officer was able to pull alongside Perry’s car and box him in; Perry finally pulled over at that point.

The officer wrote in the statement that Perry was “extremely irate” when he approached the vehicle, “cursing and screaming” at him. “I noticed his speech was slurred,” the officer wrote, “and he was unable to sit still.” The officer also noted a “strong chemical odor” on Perry’s breath.

The officer then conducted field sobriety tests on Perry, who needed a walker to stand and move. He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Perry refused a blood test at the police station, but police obtained a warrant and drew blood from Perry’s arm.

While inspecting the vehicle during Perry’s arrest, the officer wrote, police found a “large glass pipe” with burned methamphetamine in the bowl. They also discovered that Perry had a suspended driver’s license, that the vehicle registration had been expired since 2015, and that Perry had no insurance.

Another officer followed up with workers at Village Inn, who said Perry was “screaming and cursing” on his cellphone inside the store and angrily refused to leave when asked to do so. They requested he be charged with disorderly conduct and trespassing, the statement says.

Video shows Las Cruces police officer being arrested on suspicion of DWI

LAS CRUCES – A Las Cruces police officer later charged with aggravated DWI parked in the middle of an interstate driving lane when she was pulled over by a New Mexico State Police officer last month.

The incident, caught on NMSP video obtained by the Sun-News, also shows the woman’s boyfriend — who identified himself as a Las Cruces police officer  — emerging from the shrubbery on the side of the road, asking to speak to her, after she had been placed in cuffs and in the the back of a police car.

Lourdes Hernandez, 26, who’s been a police officer for just over a year, remains on administrative leave pending charges of aggravated driving while under the influence of intoxicated liquor or drugs (she refused a breathalyzer test), speeding (she was allegedly driving 73 miles per hour in a 55-mile-per-hour zone) and negligent use of a deadly weapon while intoxicated (she had her loaded department issued firearm and badge in her glove compartment).

Marijuana DUI charge in fatal accident dismissed

TOULON – A long-running Stark County criminal case alleging that a Brimfield truck driver was under the influence of marijuana in an unusual fatal traffic accident more than three years ago has ended in dismissal of that charge.

Timothy Schwenk’s aggravated driving under the influence charge was dismissed Friday at the request of State’s Attorney Jim Owens, who said that the case could not proceed without key evidence that was thrown out by a judge last month.

Schwenk, 51, now faces only two traffic offenses instead of a felony that could have resulted in a prison term of up to 14 years.

Schwenk was backing a milk tanker-truck across both lanes of traffic into a dairy farm along Illinois Route 17 west of Toulon in the pre-dawn darkness on July 11, 2017. A 41-year-old Wyoming woman, Corina Miller, drove under the tanker and was killed at the scene.

Although two deputies later testified that Schwenk showed no signs of impairment that morning, he was charged on the basis of lab results on blood and urine tests and statements to police about having smoked marijuana the night before. But Circuit Judge Bruce Fehrenbacher granted a defense motion on Sept. 4 to suppress the statements and lab results.

“The suppression of the defendant’s statements and the test results of the chemical tests of the defendant’s blood and urine results in the People of the State of Illinois not being able to meet the evidentiary burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt,” Owens stated in the motion to dismiss. He declined to comment further outside court.

The traffic charges of unsafe backing on a roadway and driving without a safety certificate were scheduled for a stipulated bench trial on Nov. 20, just 10 days before Owens’ 28 years in office end in his retirement.

Meth-fueled crash that burned down McDonald’s lands man in prison, California cops say

Meth-fueled crash that burned down McDonald’s lands man in prison, California cops say

A California man was sentenced to two years in prison for driving into a McDonald’s while under the influence of methamphetamine, causing the building to burn down, prosecutors said.

Joseph Roy Wineman, 37, was convicted Friday for driving under the influence of meth, SFGate reported.

Seaside police responded in June 2018 to a crash at a McDonald’s restaurant and a resulting explosion, according to the publication. Officers found the car had crashed into the restaurant and an engine compartment was in flames.

A witness told police the car lost control and crashed into the restaurant, CBS San Francisco reported. Wineman reportedly escaped by crawling out of the vehicle’s rear window.

Police said Wineman “was displaying symptoms of being under the influence of a stimulant,” and a drug test confirmed he had meth in his system, according to the station.

A passenger said a meth pipe was used before the crash and that Wineman had participated in using drugs, police said, KION reported.

The McDonald’s was rebuilt after the crash, according to the station.
