Police said the driver – Jordan – smelled of alcohol, however, he told police that he hadn’t had a single drink. Police asked him to consent to field sobriety tests, which they said he failed, and he was arrested.
According to police, an inventory of Jordan’s truck revealed a 12-gauge shotgun and 28 shells. The gun was confiscated.
At headquarters, Jordan refused to submit to a chemical test, which he was cited for. He was processed and transferred to court for arraignment at about 10:40 a.m.
According to online records, Jordan posted bail on Sept. 4. A felony screening date and future court hearings have yet to be scheduled.
