28-year-old Kevin James Wood drove and hit a parked car near Joseph Avenue and Richardson Avenue in the early hours of May 19th. When officers arrived, they observed a parked car with damage on the side of the road before noticing a vehicle down the road, wrecked and blocking the road. Officers approached the car and located Wood in the driver’s seat. Wood stated he was driving down Joseph Avenue when a car came close to him, so he tried to avoid it and hit the parked car. Wood said that he rolled down the street and could not stop. Wood denied consuming any alcohol, consented to sobriety tests, and performed poorly. After Wood was detained, officers searched him and found a plastic tube from a weed pen in his pocket that he said he used to smoke weed out of. He was informed of implied consent and agreed to provide a blood sample. Then, under Miranda, Wood admitted to drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana earlier in the day. Wood was taken into custody for driving under the influence and the unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.
