DUI

Shortly after 11 p.m. on June 5, officers Tyler Stone and Thomas Paine responded to the area of the Speedway on Post Road for a report of a potentially impaired operator who had been stopped by another officer.

At the scene, the reporting officer told Stone and Paine the operator of the vehicle – described as a 2007 Ford Explorer – had committed laned roadway violations. Once stopped, the operator slurred his speech and the officer detected the odor of alcohol.

Stone made contact with the operator, who is said to have acknowledged consuming alcohol earlier that night. The officer reports the man’s “eyes were bloodshot and glossy, his speech was slurred and his breath smelled like an alcoholic beverage.”

At that point, the operator is said to have agreed to undergo field sobriety testing, which he reportedly failed.

DRUG CHARGES

“The passenger in the vehicle was not wearing a seatbelt and the plates on the vehicle did not match the vehicle it was displayed on,” the officer adds. The plates were associated with a Mazda.

Boardman attempted to initiate a stop, but the vehicle “continued driving erratically through the parking lot of Motel 6.”

“I could see the passenger looking backward at me frantically, moving around, almost standing up in his seat multiple times, and reaching around towards the floorboard and both sides of his seat,” the officer reports. “The vehicle finally pulled over for me in the back of the parking lot, at the rear building.”

Boardman made contact with the vehicle’s male passenger and female operator. The passenger, he reports, was “extremely nervous … sweating profusely and could not sit still in his seat.” Additionally, the officer reports, “he had a white powdery/chalky substance in his mouth and all in his teeth as he was speaking to me.”

The operator and passenger are said to have acknowledged being in possession of marijuana. A records check found the operator’s license was suspended and that the vehicle was not actively registered.

Boardman reports he then observed “multiple twist off baggies and empty cellophane baggies with a white powdery residue on the bag,” all in “plain view” in the vehicle. An additional search found separately packaged quantities of alprazolam, according to the officer.
