20-year-old Zachery Braden Shaun Thompson passed out behind the wheel of his pick-up truck at APlus late April 5th. Officers were leaving the gas station when they observed this, so they approached him and noticed his vehicle was running. Officers noticed the gear was in drive, and Thompson’s foot was on the brake. Officers also saw a used syringe, a spoon with a white, powdery substance, and a lighter. Officers put the truck in park, turned it off, and put the key out of reach before alerting additional police officers. When they arrived, they obtained the drug paraphernalia, which Thompson explained he used to “shoot up” before the incident. He agreed to sobriety tests and performed poorly. Officers Mirandized Thompson, and he explained that he picked his buddy up to take him to buy dope. After Thompson’s friend purchased the dope, he returned to the gas station. Thompson stated his buddy then gave him a little bit and left but was going to return. Thompson then began “shooting up” and passed out before his friend came back to the vehicle. Thompson agreed to provide a blood sample and was taken into custody for driving under the influence and the unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.
