A man was arrested for driving under the influence and possession of controlled substances and drug paraphernalia after being pulled over for driving with broken taillight.
The arrest occurred Sept. 27, at approximately 8:30 p.m., when a Sevier County deputy noticed the broken taillight. The deputy pulled the vehicle over for the infraction of 41-6a-1604, which states operable stop lamps are required on vehicles. The driver, Cameron Holdaway, 33, Richfield, was the sole occupant of the vehicle.
The deputy smelled the odor of marijuana, according to Sevier County Sheriff Nate Curtis. After verifying Holdaway’s information and returning to the vehicle, the deputy asked Holdaway if he had a medical marijuana card.
“Holdaway informed the deputy he did not,” Curtis said. “The deputy noticed several other clues indicating possible impairment and asked Holdaway to step out of the vehicle.”
During a roadside field test to determine if Holdaway was safe to drive, he showed several signs of impairment and was arrested for suspicion of DUI of a controlled substance.
A bag of marijuana, pipes and bongs was found in the vehicle during impoundment of the vehicle, according to Curtis
Holdaway was booked into the Sevier County Jail on charges of stop lamps being required, no driver’s license in possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and DUI.
