Drunk Driver Reports Truck ‘Stolen,’ Blames His Passenger!
This strange case from Adams (and Grant) County took almost a week to resolve.
Adams County Sheriff releases details about strange DUI
Last Friday, Adams County Deputies attempted a traffic stop on a truck in the 2100 block of Highway 26, after determining (probable cause) the driver was intoxicated behind the wheel.
The truck and its occupants fled, leading Deputies into Grant County, where the driver dumped the truck into an orchard and ran. This is where it gets strange.
The Deputies received a report from the driver that the passenger, identified as 23-year-old Jesus Partida-Hernandez, has stolen the rig. He was taken into custody for possession of stolen property.
Then six days later, Thursday March 10th, the driver, identified as 25-year-old Carlos Ali Cera, was seen driving but he pulled over and fled on foot and was captured.
Now he's facing similar charges, including (according to the Adams County Sheriff):
"possession of a stolen vehicle, attempting to elude police vehicle, driving while license suspended in the third degree (two counts), (3) local misdemeanor warrants, (1) Grant County misdemeanor warrant, and (1) Franklin County misdemeanor warrant."
You wonder what they are thinking sometimes...
