Police say 39-year-old Jason Tolbert became “verbally argumentative” with both officers and hospital staff after a magistrate signed a warrant to have his blood drawn after he was charged with DUI Saturday night. An officer witnessed him fail to yield to another vehicle, nearly causing a crash, and conducted a traffic stop during which Tolbert admitted to drinking whisky, and had a flask with him. He failed field sobriety tests and was transported to booking.
