Intoxicated Drivers Busted For Drugs, Driving on Flat Tires and Trunk Open
Kennewick police were kept busy overnight, busting one driver after a traffic violation for alleged drugs on his possession, and another for DUI. That's the on that really got their attention.
First, 38-year-old Jorge Pimentel was arrested in Columbia Park very early in the AM after a traffic violation pullover. Police discovered Meth on him, and is facing drug and traffic violation charges.
Then police near West Clearwater and North Edison saw a vehicle ambling down the road with a punctured tire, it was weaving and the trunk was open and flapping up and down! The driver, 26-year-old Kristin Watt, was found to be inebriated and charged with DUI.
No word on if she lost any junk in the trunk due to the lid being open. Her car was impounded as well, per state DUI laws.
