The Commerce Police Department reported a quiet first week of the year, but two New Year’s Eve revelers face multiple charges following a pair of traffic stops in the wee hours of Jan. 1.
Both occurred on Homer Road at Pittman Creek, and the first was a cause of the second.
An officer pulled over a vehicle for a defective headlight and a defective tail light at 12:14 a.m. The driver, a white male, told the officer he’d already been issued a citation for not having his driver’s license on his person. There were two other passengers in the vehicle, a male and a female who claimed to have no identification.
