Upon contact, Boddie began retrieving items from into his jacket pockets and dropping the items on the ground while walking toward the officer.

Women charged with OVI
Deborah J. Bodenmiller, 59, of 555 Newell St., Apt. 33, was charged Saturday with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and cited for an improper turn and a stop sign violation.
At 1:20 a.m., an officer observed a sport utility vehicle turn north from Lincoln Avenue across four lanes of Main Street into a curb lane. The vehicle then turned eastbound on Colton Avenue and was not stopped behind the pavement stop bar at Hamilton Street.
A traffic stop was initiated and the officer talked with Bodenmiller at the window of her SUV.
Her speech was slurred and odor of alcohol was detected on her breath.
Field sobriety tests indicated she was impaired by alcohol.
Bodenmiller, who has prior OVI convictions from 2005 and 1998, declined to submit samples for chemical analysis.
• Danielle M. Harrigan, 33, of 450 Kristina Drive, Apt. 15F, was charged Saturday with OVI and endangering children. She also was cited for failure to control, stopping after a crash, driving an unsafe vehicle and failure to properly restrain a child in a vehicle.
Around 2:10 a.m., she reportedly drove an SUV into a tree in front of 1137 S. Detroit St., and fled the scene. An officer traveling south on Detroit observed Harrigan in the SUV with severe front end damage northbound and initiated a stop.
Upon approaching the vehicle, the officer detected an odor of alcohol before he reached the driver’s side window.
He reported the airbags had deployed in the vehicle.
Harrigan said she was searching for her cellular phone to call for a ride, all the while holding the phone in one hand. Her eyes were bloodshot and glossy, the officer reported.
Harrigan’s six-year-old daughter was in the front seat but not in a booster seat as required by law.
The officer again asked Harrigan why she left the crash site and she responded she was trying to call her mother but couldn’t find her phone. She still had the phone in hand.
She started field sobriety tests at the police station but soon stopped cooperating.
She refused to submit samples for chemical testing.
