33-year-old Joshua Gallagher failed to stop at a red light on Demonbreun Street in the late hours of December 2nd. After observing this, officers conducted a traffic stop and noticed Gallagher was slow to stop. Gallagher immediately placed both hands out of his windows even though officers did not command so, nor did he have any weapons in the vehicle. He was visibly intoxicated as he admitted to knowing why he was pulled over and to having two tall beers and “a couple shots of tequila.” Officers Mirandized Gallagher, and he refused to take sobriety tests without a lawyer present. He was taken into custody for driving under the influence and implied consent. Additionally, officers searched his vehicle before having it towed. They discovered an open, nearly empty beer can under his front seat, so Gallagher was also charged with an open container violation.
