On the evening of Jan. 30, Officer Brian J. Holleran reports responding to the area of Bald Hill and Toll Gate roads for a report of a drunken driving incident in progress.

Dispatch indicated that according to security personnel at Kent Hospital, a silver Nissan sedan nearly struck several vehicles in the parking lot before exiting onto Toll Gate Road heading toward Bald Hill Road. Security reported the vehicle was seen crossing the yellow double lines into oncoming traffic.

Holleran reports locating a vehicle matching the suspect’s description merging onto Bald Hill Road northbound in the right through lane. He reports the vehicle repeatedly drifted within the lane jerked to the left after crossing the white fog line. He then initiated a traffic stop, and half of the vehicle was in the lane of traffic when it came to a rest.

Holleran reports the operator’s eyes were watery and bloodshot, that her speech was slurred and she appeared lethargic. She was reportedly unable to provide her driver’s license. The officer also reports observing an opened bottle of vodka in the vehicle.

The operator is said to have consented to field sobriety testing, which she was reportedly unable to complete.

While at the Motel 6 at 20 Jefferson Blvd. at approximately 11:43 p.m. on Feb. 2, Sgt. Jedidiah D. Pineau reports observing at least two subjects in a running vehicle with its lights on.
