DWI/CDS Arrest

On 02/10/2009 at approximately 12:48 a.m., OFC Kevin A. Myers of the Frederick Police Department was on routine patrol in the 100 block of South Market St. when he observed a pick-up truck drive out the wrong way from Citizens Way and then turn the wrong way south bound on S. Market St. OFC Myers was forced to take evasive action to avoid being struck by this vehicle which proceeded to jump a curb and strike a City street sign. The truck then reversed and backed into a city lamp post knocking it over. At this time OFC Myers was able to approach the vehicle and order the driver to cease his actions.

The driver was identified as the below listed arrestee and was found by OFC Myers to be extremely intoxicated. The driver was placed under arrest and during a search incident to the arrest, OFC Myers located a quantity of suspected marijuana in the arrestee’s pocket.

The arrestee was transported to Frederick County Central Booking for processing and an appearance before the District Court Commissioner. The arrestee was held by the commissioner in lieu of $15,000 bond. The investigation into this incident continues and other charges are expected to be forthcoming.
