By Mike Lakin Officer Kyle Veech stopped a motorist whose vehicle had one head- light when two should have broken the gloom. While talking with the cordial driver, Officer Veech's attention was drawn to the passenger. He looked straight ahead and seemed a bit ner- vous. So, Officer Veech took both driv- ers licenses, just to check. The nervous passenger was wanted on an outstanding aggravated battery warrant. The driver was allowed to travel on with a warning and sans one passenger. The passenger was off to the county jail to await his fate. O The driver was awarded a sus- pended driver's license on 9/11 / 11. On 9/15/11 Chief Freer pulled him over. The driver offered he was unaware of the suspension. On checking, the suspension was for driving without insurance. The insurance card he presented had been issued 5/7/11 and cancelled 6/27/11 for failure to pay. As is so often the case, the driver had time to think about the direction his life was taking while con- fined to the county jail. O The driver earned a three page - single spaced report. Officer Veech stopped the driver after a call from county dispatch. An alert citizen called in that the driver was having trouble keeping his pick-up out of the ditches and was reported all-over Route 121. As Officer Veech followed the pick-up the driver had trouble keeping the truck on what must have appeared to him as ever narrowing highway. When the driver stopped, he lifted his Bud Light and placed it behind the passenger seat. The smell of alcohol wafted from the truck, but the emitter was mainly the driver. The driver did hand over his beer stash and said he'd had about a half-dozen. Making a long story short, he failed the field test. His BAC was .139 in a time when .08 is the limit. He was arrested for DUI. O Officer Veech took a report on a vehicle accident at Kentucky & German Ave. A motorist struck a parked car. No injuries reported. O Mt. Pulaski resident filed a report on a hit and run. Red paint was trans- ferred to the blue vehicle. Officer Veech took the report. O The driver said he thought his permit was in effect. It wasn't. The driver was arrested and cited for driving sus- i pended and driving without insurance. Chief Freer made arrest. O Another driver thought he had a work permit. He thought wrong. He was arrested for driving suspended. His record showed the suspension started 7/20/11 for convictions on two moving violations in a 24-month period. He was due to be reinstated 10/20/11, but that looks doubtful now. Chief Freer made the arrest. Did You Know - The U.S. is 26th in the world when it comes to Internet speed connections.
