11200 blk Canyon Rd E , Summit
A patrol deputy was stopped at the light at 112th St E and Canyon Rd E and noticed a blue Mustang in the left turn lane on the other side of the intersection. When the Mustang attempted to turn onto northbound Canyon Rd E, it went into oncoming lanes and struck the center curb. This caused damage to the car and debris was left behind as it drove away. The deputy turned on his lights and attempted a traffic stop. The driver eventually pulled over a few blocks down the road. The deputy could smell alcohol coming from the driver and she was slurring her words. She was too unstable on her feet to perform field sobriety tests, so she was transported to a police station to provide a breath sample. Her blood alcohol level was more than two times the legal limit. The 51-year-old driver was arrested for DUI and charges were forwarded to the prosecutor’s office.

Once the driver saw the patrol vehicle behind him, he started to speed up. Afraid that the suspect would run another red light, the sergeant turned on his lights and siren to try and stop the vehicle. The driver failed to yield and sped away.
