A deputy was parked in the 32800 block of Mountain Hwy E when he spotted a vehicle speeding southbound.

The car stopped at the red light at Eatonville Cutoff Rd E and signaled to go eastbound. The deputy caught up to the car as it pulled into a driveway in the 36700 block of Eatonville Cutoff Rd E. The 16-year-old female driver initially told the deputy that she was speeding to get away from someone who was following her. When the deputy told her that there were no other vehicles around, she admitted that she was trying to get to her friend’s house before her 1:00 a.m. curfew. She was cited and released for reckless driving, which is a misdemeanor crime.

Incident # 24-077-01857

A Foothills Detachment deputy was flagged down by a man who said his mother was driving drunk through his neighborhood. The deputy found the car nearby and conducted a traffic stop. When he approached the car, the driver opened the door. He immediately smelled alcohol. The deputy told the woman several times to turn off the car, but she refused. While talking with the driver, the deputy noticed several signs of impairment. He told her she was under arrest and ordered her out of the vehicle. She again refused to comply, stating that her arm was stuck between the seat and the center console, and telling the deputy that he needed to call her attorney. When backup arrived, deputies pulled the driver out of the car and placed her in handcuffs. The 59-year-old woman directed racial slurs at the arresting deputy. She also claimed to know where he lived and made threats against him. She was transported to the hospital for a blood draw before being booked into jail for DUI with prior conviction and resisting arrest.
