34-year-old Anthony Higgins was at the Shell gas station on November 12 when an anonymous citizen flagged officers down regarding him being impaired and trying to drive. Officers observed Higgins stumbling, trying to open his SUV door while swaying back and forth. Higgins then entered the gas station and later returned to his vehicle. Higgins began to drive off, then officers initiated a traffic stop in the parking lot, and Higgins circled the Shell before stopping. He advised officers that he had marijuana and smoked some earlier that night before consenting to sobriety tests and performing poorly. Higgins was taken into custody for driving under the influence.
