I saw this guy driving up the road and he was obeying all of the rules of the road. It just took him a while to realize that the light was green. I lit him up and had him pull over to the side of the road. I made contact with him and his speech was pretty good, slight redness of the eyes and no odor of alcohol due to all of the cologne he said he spilled in his car. I asked for his drivers' license, insurance, registration and ran a check on him which came back clear. I asked him where was he going and if he was okay to drive to which he stated Yes. I asked if he would perform a couple of tests for me just to make sure which he stated Yes. He opened the truck door of his vehicle and fell right out into the street. I just stood there for a few minutes in shock and forgot everything that I was taught. I radioed for an additional unit and dragged the guy out of the road. The road supervisor showed up and asked what had happen and whe I told him, he just started to laugh. Then I started to laugh and said " No one told me this kinda of stuff would happened" It was pretty funny and shocking for me at that time. Now nothing surprise me when I pull over individuals who had been drinking.

That's pretty good.


I will share my first DUI arrest.


I was only 21 at the time and still in training. It was a midnight shift and I was stopped at a red light. There were no other cars on the road near my location except for one. I saw in front of me across from my intersection a sedan type vehicle traveling down the highway swerving from one side of the highway to the other. I also noticed sparks coming from the roadway on the driver side. As I approched the vehicle I noticed it was drivng on two inflated tires and two rims (causing the sparks). When I stopped the vehicle and approached the driver (female) I was blown away by the odor of alcohol. It started out smooth, you know the normal small talk and questions, then when I got her out of the car all hell broke loose. She refused to perform FST's and told me to go F**K myself. Based on her actions and the fact she could hardly stand, I quickly replied "Ok you are under arrest for DUI". Making the mistake of not cuffing her before searching her, I turned her so she was facing the car and began to pat her down. While I was reaching towards the bottom of her pants leg, she tried elbowing me in the head. My FTO at the time grabbed her up and face planted her on the back of her car. I was in shock for a second not realizing you could be that aggressive. She was cuffed, stuffed and taken back to our deparment for processing. While she was in the cell area, she yelled, cussed and stripped butt naked. Let's just say a water buffalo looked better then her. She ran around the cell grabbing her butt cheeks yelling kiss my A**. She then proceeded to pull a feminine product from her lower extremities and threw it at another officer. It was nasty but funny at the same time. After two hours of her bull crap, we finished our paperwork and wrapped her in black trash bags, hog tied her and took her to the county jail. That is one DUI I will never forget. I have been on the job now for 6 and half years and have not encountered that type of DUI again.

My first DWI was a nightmare.


I had been in a car by myself for maybe a month.  I was working evening shift and around 11 pm I received a call for a multi vehicle accident on West St.  I responded and found that a vehicle had stuck three other cars as it traveled from one intersection to the next a block away.   I approached the driver after checking on the other operaters to make sure they were ok.  The guy was drunk as a skunk.  I tried to talk to him but wasn't having any luck.  Turns out the guy was deaf as a stone. I couldn't get him to do any field test because he didn't comprehend what I was trying to tell him to do.  When I got him to the station, I figured I would let him read his rights to a chemical test.  Turns out that the guy was blind as a bat without his glasses which had been broken during the accident.  I tried like hell to make him understand what he needed to do and his right to refusal but he didn't have a clue.  He didn't take a breath test and we just stuck him in a cell.  I charged him and just knew this is going to be a real nightmare in court.  I was a nervous wreck by the end of it.


That guys court date came up three times and he never showed for any of them.  To this day I have not been to court with that one.  Never saw the guy again and don't want to.

My first OWI stop I did fresh out of the academy...this is crazy especially in the small community I worked in when I first came into law enforcement.  One cop town, approximately 1510 hrs...oh yes I remember this well.  I'm tooling along on a road that goes by some grain bins and to my left this family sedan flys across the intersection in front of me...I lock up the brakes and start cussing.  I turn to follow the vehicle because it looks familiar and I think I know who it is.  I make it past the cities sand pile for winter road care and get flagged down by the city road supervisor.  He says M******* about hit me.  I pull up into the driveway and see the same vehicle sitting in the car still.  I call out my stop and walk up to the car carefully....wave at the driver who gets out....hanging on to the door like gravity had gone away and it was his life line to stay grounded....uses the car as a crutch to get to the back of the vehicle and then he sits on the bumper.  Here is where it gets interesting..... ITS THE BAPTIST MINISTER.  I'm nervous as hell I don't want to mess up SFST's so I get on my phone and call for the closest deputy...at the other end of the county...check state radio to see if a troop is closer...1 county away.  slurring speech booze rolling off his breath.  Deputy shows up...and I explain the situation and the fact that I'm nervous as hell and want someone to watch and correct my field sobriety tests.  I get it all done, he blows in the PBT something over .150.  I go to cuff him and he starts screaming...u have ruined me, u ruined my life, how can u do this to me...I get this for the whole ride to the SO.  He blows into the datamaster (our big machine for the official results) and then says I also wanna give blood...get that done with and go home......boy were the stories going around town...about 6 months later I have a knock at my door...same minister...he says "I want to appologize for the way I acted when you stopped me, there was no call for that, thank you"

wiseass0282, you could have what happend with me. I pulled the guy over for going 15mph under the speed limit and smelled a strong odor of alcohol. I had him exit the vehicle were he refused to do any FSTs and also refused the PBT. I advised him he was under arrest and took him to jail. When we got there he said he was going to refuse to blow again, so I charged him with refusal also. The court date came and he did not show up. The judge issued a capias for failure to appear. The next day my partner went to serve the capias and the guy had passed away in his living room.

Got sent to check on the old drunk guy at a low rent apt. As I walk up on the porch I get the unmistakeable deadpeople smell. You know the one........it gets in your clothes and car and is all you smell for the rest of the shift unless you cant stand it anymore and set yourself on fire to get rid of it.


Anyway there's the poor old "dead" guy Joe lying on the ground, glued to the carpet by vomit and excrement. It was like 85 degrees in the apt so  it was horrificly smelly. I opened a couple windows just to try to get some relief until the M.E. can get out to the scene. A breeze blows through and the lifeless corpse moans and then sets about peeling himself up off the bodily fluid fly trap he was laying in. If that werent bad enough the guy lets out a blood curdling zombie moan that caused me to spin around and draw my weapon on him. Now he's not dead my heart is beating a mile a minute and I almost shot him cause he scared the crap out of me...........So my drunk dead guy lived just long enough to nearly give me a heart attack.
