22-year-old Dawson Huckabee was jailed on March 19th after police responded to an indecent exposure at Plus Park Boulevard. Officers arrived on the scene to find Huckabee unconscious behind the wheel of his vehicle while it was running. Officers tried to wake him by repeatedly shouting and pounding on the window. Officers observed several open, tall Voodoo Ranger beer cans in the front seat and center console. The officers decided to open the door to ensure Dawson didn’t require medical attention. They squeezed his arms, received no response, and were forced to perform a sternum rub. Dawson was slow to wake up but ultimately was able to respond to officers. He exited the vehicle and said he was “listening to an album.” Dawson later admitted to drinking three or four beers in his car and consented to sobriety tests, which he performed poorly on. Dawson then agreed to a breath sample but couldn’t provide a sufficient sample and was taken into custody for DUI.
