A confused driver handed Bay Village Police a Sears receipt instead of her insurance card when questioned during a traffic stop this week. The confusion was one detail in the resulting DWI charges.
The story: On 05/13/2017, at 12:35 AM, an officer on routine patrol saw a Honda Civic travelling erratically west bound on Lake Road, near Vineland. After it again crossed the double yellow line, the officer stopped the vehicle near Oakmoor. As the Honda pulled over to the right hand side, it struck the curb.
The officer was walking up to speak to the driver and noticed the female driver lowered the rear window instead of the driver’s window. Once the correct window was lowered, the officer noted the faint aroma of marijuana and that the driver’s eyes were glassy.
The 32-year old said she was on her way home to Canton and figured she was about ¾ of the way there. She had trouble locating her insurance information and started to hand the officer a Sears receipt.
After failing the standard field sobriety tests, she was arrested and taken back to the station for processing. Later she was released on personal bond to a sober adult. She will be charged into Rocky River Municipal Court for DWI, multiple other traffic charges and Possession of Marijuana.
