The witnesses indicated that the operator had been swerving prior to the crash and was attempting to leave. Deputies arrived and located the moped fleeing on Dan Hoey. Deputies initiated a traffic stop and quickly suspected that the operator was intoxicated. Deputies performed Standardized Field Sobriety Tests and determined that the operator was impaired. The subject was placed under arrest and lodged at the County jail. Blood tests indicated that the subjects BAC was over 2x the legal limit.
On April 29th, Deputies responded to the 3200 block of Broad for a Malicious Destruction of Property (MDOP) complaint. The victim reported that a tire on his vehicle had been slashed.
