The deputies spotted the man walking alongside High Falls Road, yelling and making hand gestures and causing traffic to back up behind him. Robins approached the man at the corner of High Falls and Buck Creek roads, and the man, speaking in the third person, said he didn't do anything and just needed a ride to his mother's house. The man, who was shaking and rambling, couldn't find his ID but kept repeating his name in incomprehen- sible sentences. The man then pulled his gi'ill out of his mouth and threat- ened to fight the deputies. Robins told the man he could either keep walking to his mother's house off the roadway or be arrested. The man then kept walking down Buck Creek Road but began to chase after cars as ffhe was a dog before skipping back toward High Falls Road. The man then turned around and flashed obscene hand gestures at the deputies and again ran in front of traffic.

When the man answered that he had smoked "five min- utes ago" he was arrested and taken to the Monroe County Jail. man wlth Dill after Hwy. 42 South traffic stop A S0-year-old white Forsyth man was arrested and charged with DUI after a traffic stop on Hwy. 42 South on March 26.

The male driver had slurred speech and admitted to having drunk two beers about an hour prior to the stop. When Seckinger then asked the driver, who could not find his license, about taking some field sobriety tests, the driver said he prob- ably would not pass them. The driver, who was very unsteady on his feet and used the truck to keep from falling, then failed a field sobriety test. Seckinger then .searched the truck and found an open, cold 20-ounce can of Mango- Rita on the passenger side floorboard.

Haskins smelled a strong odor of raw mari- juana coming from inside the vehicle. The male driver told Haskins he was an Uber driver, and he lets people smoke marijuana in his vehicle because they usually tip more. Haskins and Dep. Perry Fitzgerald then searched the vehicle and found a plastic bag with raw marijuana inside under the driver's side floor mat. The driver said the marijuana was not his and must have been left there by an Uber passenger. Haskins asked the driver how an Uber passenger could have left marijuana under the driver's side floor mat, and the driver just shook his head.

Dispatchers deter- mined the female driver had a suspended license while they couldn't find any information on the male driver, who claimed to have a Mississippi license. When Haskins asked the driver about the passenger's iden- tity, the driver said, "I don't know why he's lying. You l have to ask him." Haskins then told the passenger to put his hands behind his back at which point, passenger replied, "Man, I didn't do s---." and began to walk away. Haskins then grabbed the passen- ger's arms and took him to the ground at which point he handcuffed him. The passenger then gave Haskins his real name and date of birth and said he lied because he had an arrest warrant out of Bibb Count. Deputies then took the driver and passenger to the Monroe County Jail.

I messed up" and admitted to having marijuana inside the truck.
