Saline Police: Driver Arrested For Being Under Influence Admits Using Marijuana

Recommended Posts

SALINE — A 19-year-old Ann Arbor man who was arrested Nov. 30 for driving under the influence admitted to using both marijuana and heroin earlier that day.

At about 6:25 p.m. that afternoon, a 911 caller first notified police about a silver Honda traveling west on Michigan Avenue near Ypsilanti that she saw driving hazardously, weaving out of the lane and going at a high rate of speed, according to the Saline police report.

The 911 call was transferred to Saline police dispatch after the caller, who continued following the driver, reported the Honda was approaching Saline’s city limits. The Honda was seen turning only northbound Maple Road.

Police responded and caught up with the driver in time to see the Honda go through a light turning red at Woodland Drive, according to the report. A traffic stop was conducted north of the intersection.

Contact was made with the driver, who police observed seemed lethargic, and noticed the smell of marijuana. He admitted smoking marijuana and he submitted to some roadside sobriety tests, which he did pass.

Due to observations of his condition, police requested a drug recognition expert from the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office, who responded to the scene. While the sheriff officer was doing an assessment of the driver, police searched the Honda and found a marijuana pipe with suspected marijuana residue on it.

A second marijuana pipe was found on the driver and, later during contact with police, a small baggie containing what police believe was marijuana. Based on the evidence and assessment of the driver, he was taken into custody.

He agreed to have his blood drawn at the hospital to be tested by the Michigan State Police crime lab. He was held until considered sober.
