Man charged with DUI of marijuana; Commissioner denies MNPD’s blood warrant request — Javarrian Boddie

#MNPD Officer Coleman Womack says 25-year-old Javarrian Boddie was driving under the influence of drugs, and believes the specific drug to be marijuana, after an initial stop for a brake light being out. An arrest affidavit, which he signed under oath, states this is due to “watery eyes being a sign of drug use”, and Boddie “smelling like marijuana”.

Despite Boddie showing no clues of impairment on some tests, and only minimal clues on others, Officer Womack took him into custody, where he says Boddie fell asleep in the back of the patrol car while he was completing paperwork and his speech was “so slurred it was hard to understand”. Coleman drafted a warrant for a blood draw, however, Night Court Commissioner Steve Holzapfel denied the warrant, for insufficient cause. Bodie was booked on charges of DUI, implied consent violation, and driving on s suspended license. He is free on a $2,000 bond.
