Driver charged with OVI
Brent A. Johnson Jr., 21, of 208 E. Buckingham Ave., was charged Sunday with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and drug abuse. He was cited for a marked lanes violation and speeding.
At 9:55 p.m., an officer tracked a northbound sport utility vehicle with radar traveling at 38 mph on Ludlow Road, a 25-mph street. The officer turned to follow the SUV and observed it cross the center line as it approached Eastern Avenue.
An odor of raw marijuana was prevalent, the officer reported, as he talked with Johnson through an open driver’s side window.
When asked about marijuana in the vehicle, Johnson responded there was none as he and his passengers had “just smoked it all.” He was asked to exit the vehicle and was unsteady on his feet.
Field sobriety tests indicated he was impaired by marijuana. A urine sample was collected at the police department for laboratory analysis. He was released to a sober relative.
