A man who called Commerce police following an argument with his girlfriend may have had second thoughts.
Not only was she arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol, but both were cited for misdemeanor possession of marijuana and the boyfriend with violation of the open container law.
The call came in from Cody Don Faubion, 22, of 277 Magnolia Place, Commerce. According to the incident report, Faubion said his girlfriend was driving while drunk and would not let him out of the vehicle.
An officer encountered the car and pulled it over, at which time, the report said, Faubion told police he called them after he and Chasity Marie Jones, 20, of 2354 Hwy. 326, Commerce, “had a disagreement.”
One officer conducted a field sobriety test on Jones, noting her slurred speech, trouble maintaining her balance and the smell of alcohol, and charged her with DUI.
A second officer saw an “open case” of Coors beer in the back seat and said he found a “small bud” of marijuana under the passenger seat. He noted the Faubion admitted having four to five beers and a Jager Bomb.
For the rest of the arrests reported by the Commerce Police Department during the past week, see the Nov. 5 issue of The Commerce News.
I wonder what the Banks County Defacs office would have to say about this young mother and her boyfriend being arrested on possession and an underaged DUI. Maybe this is something they should be looking into. This does not sound like a good environment for a small child to be raised in...fighting, drunkness, and drug use. Some poeple should not be allowed to reproduce and on the off chance that they do...should they really be allowed to keep they child in their custody when they obviously are unfit?
