26-year-old Omar El-Assuli was involved in a single-vehicle accident on November 25th. Officers arrived and noticed that El-Assuli had a strong cologne odor while chewing some gum, causing them to believe he was using it to cover a scent. He advised officers that he had fallen asleep while driving and thought he hit a pole but was unaware of how the crash happened. Officers observed him to be visibly intoxicated as he told them he was coming from the Soho Lounge. El-Assuli told officers he had a handgun, so they secured it, and then he agreed to sobriety tests and performed poorly. El-Assuli was taken into custody for driving under the influence and possession of a handgun while under the influence.
