59-year-old Tuan Le was involved in a car accident on James Street in the early hours of November 23rd. Officers arrived and noticed a black Toyota sedan, upside down, blocking the roadway. The car collided with the cement drainage area by the residence’s front lawn. Residents came out and found Le in the driver seat of the rolled-over vehicle, and as they cut the seatbelt to release him from the car, they could see he was visibly intoxicated. Le spoke with officers and told them that he had one beer, that he was coming from a friend’s house, and that he was on the phone when he crashed into the cement drainage system. He consented to sobriety tests, performed poorly, and was taken into custody for driving under the influence.
