21-year-old Julio Reyes-Rodriguez was arrested after driving into a prohibited area and causing a catastrophic oil leak to his vehicle. On Mar 4th, a tree knocked down power lines onto the road. Officers created a road closure with crime scene tape and cones. Mr. Reyes-Rodriguez drove his car through the cones and tape getting one of the power lines wrapped around his car, and a cone stuck under it, causing a massive oil leak. Despite all the visible warnings Reyes-Rodriguez only stopped when an officer approached him. Instead of speaking with the officer, Reyes-Rodriguez started backing up his car, getting further tangled up in debris. When he finally stopped and spoke, officers saw several opened and unopened beer bottles in the car. Officers observed alcohol on his breath, bloodshot watery eyes, and a lack of balance. He admitted that he had five drinks and agreed to a sobriety test which he performed poorly on, with several indicators of impairment.
